TO: American University Community
FROM: Scott A. Bass, Provost
SUBJECT: Congratulations on American University’s Milestone

I am pleased to inform you that AU has reached an important milestone. This year (FY 2018), AU has received over $30 million in externally funded grants and contracts. It is the largest amount of external support ever received in our university’s history. The actual amount received in new awards was $30,258,163.81.

This milestone is a direct reflection of the engagement of our faculty and the staff who assist in the process. My thanks to everyone in our community who helped make this possible. The funding will assist our investigators with important research and programs that would not have occurred otherwise.

Congratulations to all!
