I am a PhD student in one of the social sciences going on the market. A large organization funded part of my dissertation research, as part of a research partnership. I wrote a report for them with some of the data in return. The total funding was a couple hundred thousand dollars, which is a lot in my field.
I was hoping to list the funder and the amount in my CV and cover letter to demonstrate my record of linking my research with funding.
The organization however insists that specific funding figures are confidential and I cannot use the precise number of the total funding.
Without the ability to put the specific number, what is a tasteful way to indicate in my job application that I received this large amount of research support?
