LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The University of Kansas says its research funding set a record in 2011-12, reaching $275.2 million.
It's the fifth straight year the funding increased but university officials say federal budget cuts might halt that trend.
University official Steve Warren says the school is likely to set another record for 2012-13. But Warren says mandatory federal budget cuts of about 5 percent that took effect in March is already affecting funding for the university's research.
Federal funding accounted for $223.4 million in research money at Kansas in the 2011-12 year.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports the university's School of Education is already feeling the effects of the federal cuts. The U.S. Department of Education has awarded almost no new research grants this year.
