The group is supported by several grants from the National Science Foundation; including a prestigious long-term NSF Young Investigator Award 1996-2002 (for change management research), a multi-investigator grant with Prof. Matt Ward 1998 - 2001 (for large-scale data mining using visualization), a CISE equipment grant with Profs. Ward and Cruz, an NSF research grant 2000-2003 (for data warehousing), and another multi-investigator grant with Prof. Matt Ward 2001 - 2004 (for visual exploration for high-dimensional data sets).

We are also supported by industry in the form of grants, software and hardware contributions, and fellowships, in particular by IBM (with an IBM Partnership Award to Prof. Rundensteiner, and with several IBM Corporate Fellowships to Ph.d. students in the DSRG group), by Object Design Inc. (with PSE software contributions), by GTE Inc. (with a research grant supporting students), by GE (with a graduate student fellowship), and by Microsoft Corporation (with software contributions), by Verizon lab (with a research intern grant), and by HP labs (with a grass roots grant).
