What's public funding?

Funding that originates from a government (federal, state, county, city) or pass-through funding from a government is considered public funding.

Who handles private funding?

University Development Services staff supports searching for gift or grant funding that originates from a private-sector source such as corporations and charitable or philanthropic organizations.
