The Leadership Connect data science team looked at federal awards with public universities over the past five years to analyze how much government work they receive and which offices work with each school. We then compare a school to their peers. We are posting our findings for the Top 20 Public schools according to US News’ popular ranking.

The University of Maryland ties with the University of Washington, Rutgers University, and Florida State University at #19.
