The overall focus of this brief book is on answering the question: “How can I find money to support my research?” In this chapter, we present funding options, and add perspective on how you can level the playing field. We start by discussing why you might wish to apply for government and foundation grant and contract awards, why you might prefer grant or contract funding, then overview various ways to use outside funding to propel your academic career, support your students, and build your research career.
