URBANA -- Administrators at the University of Illinois were bracing for across-the-board cuts in federal research money, but say so far the impact hasn't been as severe as expected.

The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports the school planned to lose more than $65 million in automatic budget cuts that went into effect in March. The school's three campuses get about $800 million in federal funding each year.

While the cuts weren't as deep, administrators are now are worried there will be decreases in federal aid in the future.

Randall Kangas is the school's associate vice president for planning and budgeting. He says the school system is now expecting fewer and lower grants in the future.

Some top researchers in Urbana have been told their grants are being reduced.
