Funded Research

As a department, we work hard to support the ever growing need for the power of math and the financial support received by many of our faculty reflect this effort. A good number of UArizona faculty are supported grants and contracts from external agencies with totals averaging millions of dollars per year! The undergraduate, graduate, and GIDP programs have been awarded two 5-year, $3.5 million VIGRE training grants from the National Science Foundation, a distinction very few programs in the country can match.
