Top U.S. Universities Shun Cash From Huawei Under Trump Pressure

  • Princeton, Berkeley avoiding research money from gear maker
  • Pressured by U.S. government over Huawei security risks

Top U.S. universities are shunning research money from Huawei Technologies Co. amid pressure from Congress and the Trump administration to limit dealings with the Chinese telecommunications-equipment maker over national security concerns.

Princeton University, Stanford University, Ohio State University and the University of California at Berkeley all say they are cutting or reducing ties to Huawei. The company gave $10.6 million in gifts and contracts to nine U.S. schools for technology and communications programs from 2012 to 2018, according to the Education Department.
