Sponsored-Research Funds

Sponsored-research funds account for about one-fifth of Harvard's operating revenue — and for 50 to 70 percent of the revenue of the schools of medicine and of public health. This snapshot, using data from fiscal year 2002, indicates the clear importance of federal funds, the source of about 80 percent of the University's sponsored-research support, particularly for biomedical work underwritten by the National Institutes of Health.
