UI's budget relies on variety of sources

Of the University of Idaho's total operating budget for the current year of $453 million, only 23 percent - $104 million - comes from the state general fund. That includes general education, agricultural research and extension, medical education and special programs. Grants, contracts and federal support make up 42 percent of UI's budget, or $188 million. That includes federal student aid like Pell Grants, along with federal, state and private research grants.

Within its general education budget of $140 million, about 53 percent, or $73.5 million, comes from the state's higher education appropriation. The rest is from dedicated funds, land endowment earnings, federal funds and student fees. UI students are paying $30.7 million this year in matriculation fees, plus $58.5 million in other fees.
