Texas Comprehensive Research Fund

Eligible institutions: doctoral, comprehensive, and master's institutions

In 2015, the Texas Legislature created (Texas Comprehensive Research Fund) TCRF to provide funds to all Texas' public universities that are neither research nor emerging research institutions. The TCRF supports increased research capacity at eligible public universities, distributing funds by a set formula allocation to support faculty including individual projects, such as laboratory and equipment upgrades and graduate student tuition. The distribution formula is based on restricted research expenditures.

The Coordinating Board created Standards and Accounting Methods (SAMs) for reporting restricted research expenditures and holds annual meetings of the Restricted Research Committee for a transparency review of restricted research awards. Fund recipients report annually how they utilized the money. (See restricted research expenditures.)
