Husky fishes for funding in D.C. (By Pamela Hardy, The Daily of the University of Washington-Seattle)
- In recent years, colleges and universities have raised their spending budget on lobbying Congress, and the UW is no exception.
Barbara Perry, UW associate vice president and director of federal relations, spends her time in Washington, D.C. representing the voice of the faculty and students of the UW, advocating for their interests and the University community.
In Washington, D.C., Perry, a lobbyist for more than 30 years, spends the majority of her time campaigning for funding in basic research by such agencies as the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Her promotion of research in science and medical advancements had led to such funding as a $70 million grant for the UW and its nanotechnology funded by the NSF. More here
