Abstract

One of the many reasons that people enter into academia is for the opportunity to work on their own research projects. Often working on individual research projects requires external funding, and obtaining external funding is not easy. In fact, it is one of the most challenging things that academics do. However, it is very rewarding when researchers are provided funds that enable them to perform research. This is especially true in times of tight institutional budgets or fiscal insecurity.
