The Research Corporation of the University of Guam (RCUOG) was established in February 2014 by Public Law 32-114 to create an efficient managerial environment to compete for and manage grants.


RCUOG manages over $30 million dollars in federal and private grants that focus on research, education, and outreach projects. The 2022 National Science Foundation Ranking by Total Research and Development Expenditures ranks the University of Guam in the 68th percentile in the nation. UOG’s ranking as 284th out of 890 institutions included in the ranking indicates the growth of the research ecosystem at UOG and the role RCUOG plays in supporting current and future research projects.
