With more money rolling into the state this year, more people are expected to have their hand out.

The University of New Mexico wants an 8 percent increase in new money from the funding formula.

Currently, colleges receive funding based on graduation rates and other metrics.

UNM is also looking for $27 million for capital projects and nearly $9 million for research and public service projects. 

They’re also asking for a little more than $4 million for the Athletics Department.
