How Donald Trump’s budget would affect public universities in Colorado - Christopher N. Osher and Danika Worthington, Denver Post

The University of Colorado would be stung by the proposed budget cuts through reduced research funding, school officials said. Those losses would ripple throughout the state’s economy. Nearly two-thirds of CU’s research funding for the fiscal year that ended last June — $602 million of a record $924 million total — came from federal agencies, with about half coming from the Department of Health and Human Services, said Ken McConnellogue, spokesman for the CU system. That agency would be looking at an 18 percent cut under the proposed budget. CU receives about $85 million from the National Science Foundation, which isn’t specifically mentioned in the proposed budget but could be included among unnamed agencies in line to see funding slashed.
