- None! In anticipation of retiring from UC Davis during the Summer of 2023, I have let my
NSF funding end, not requesting any new grants for several years.

University Research Program (URP). Many thanks to David McGrew.
- I have never been funded by the DoD (the U.S. Department of Defense): no grants from
DARPA, Navy, MURI, NSA, etc.. While their program managers may support
good and worthwhile science, these organizations embody values antithetical to my own.
I encourage faculty and students to take a principled stance and
refuse to request or accept funding from military organizations.
- Similarly, do we really want Facebook or Chevron, say, to be
paying for, and thereby helping to shape, the work that goes on at universities?
Not only individuals, but departments, colleges, and research units can and should say No.
- Why are faculty proud of how much money they bring in?
Be pleased instead if you can do lots of good work with very little money.
