Research Development Fund

In 2001, the Texas Legislature created the Texas Excellence Fund and the University Research Fund to enhance research. In 2003, the Texas Legislature combined the two funds to establish the Research Development Fund (RDF), effective September 1, 2005, for FY 2006. The RDF supports increased research capacity at eligible public universities (all public institutions, except UT-Austin and Texas A&M University), distributing funds by a set allocation formula to faculty for individual projects, such as laboratory and equipment upgrades and graduate student tuition.
