Faculty researchers at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University earned $64.37 million in contracts and grants in 2018-19.

A strong majority of the research awards come from the federal sector, are competitive in nature and support collaborative and innovative projects.

“Our continued growth as a high-research activity institution is a testament to the outstanding work of our faculty and researchers,” Chancellor Harold L. Martin Sr. said. “Their undying curiosity and innovative thinking continues to lead the way to solving some of the world’s most complex challenges.”

This year’s total means N.C. A&T continues to be one of the state’s three most productive public research campuses, along with UNC-Chapel Hill and North Carolina State.
