A $1 million Southwest Funding Grant will be used to create a Southwestern University Fund, to be administered by the SWRI.
“This funding will help provide more opportunities for the Southwestern community to engage in critical research and support the academic excellence of our students, faculty and staff, and the Southwest is a top-tier university that has proven its ability to produce cutting-edge researchers,” said Robert C. Scott, President and CEO of the Southwest Fund.
“We’re excited about this opportunity to bring new research and innovation to the region and bring our students and faculty closer together.
This fund will support the Southside’s research and provide access to funding for the SWRI,” he added.
The Southwest Funding grant is the first SWRI-funded initiative.
SWRI has a $10 million endowment fund, which will be administered from the endowment of the SWF.
The fund will be funded with the SWFRI’s $10 billion endowment.
The SWRI Endowment Fund, which is being established by the Southwest Foundation, will support research in the fields of health care, global warming, the environment and technology.
“The SWRI’s endowment will help us make investments in the future of Southwest and its students and staff,” Scott said.
“SWRI’s research programs and research infrastructure are the envy of the world.
We look forward to a productive relationship with SWRI, and hope that we will be able to collaborate with the university on a broad range of projects in areas of public health, climate change, energy, education, transportation, finance and social services,” he said.
The Southwestern Institute of Science and Engineering is located in Denver, Colorado, with a campus in Greeley, Colorado.
The institution is the only independent research institution of its kind in the United States.
“For the first time, the Southwest Funding Fund will support academic research at Southwestern.
SWF will be an important partner in our effort to continue the university’s leadership in global warming research and technology, and its mission to build a brighter, more sustainable future for people and planet,” Scott continued.
“I’m particularly excited about the funding, as the SWI is one of the top universities in the country and one of our most talented students and professors.
SWRIs students, staff and faculty are the backbone of our university, and we’re committed to supporting them as they continue to achieve success in science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” said SWRI President and Chancellor Christopher H. Wysocki.
