SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Missouri State University announced Wednesday it received more than $20 million in grants during Fiscal Year 2013.

That's a 6-percent increase over the previous year, according to the office of sponsored research and programs.

MSU says during Fiscal Year 2013, which ended June 30, 289 grants were awarded, totaling $20,188,675 in additional resources for the university.

The university plans to use the money to assist university departments, faculty and staff with education, research and service projects. 

MSU leaders say the economic downturn reduced the amount of funding available from international, non-profit and business organizations, but the university received an increase in funding from state and federal agencies.

Federal agencies continued to provide the greatest amount of funding for FY13, with an approximate total of $8.2 million, while state agencies supplied $4.6 million.
