Advanced doctoral students and beginning assistant professors frequently express the belief that in order to conduct high-quality, publishable research, they must secure substantial amounts of grant funding from external agencies. This belief arises from the view—often expressed by university administrators—that only through large, externally funded grants will investigators have the capacity to buy out of some of their teaching responsibilities, purchase necessary equipment and supplies, compensate individuals for participating in their experiments, pay research assistants to collect and analyze their data, and cover their own travel expenses to present their findings at research conferences. Without a doubt, these are major benefits of having external funding, and there are many others as well. Most notably, a well-funded project may allow a team of investigators to conduct a series of detailed studies on an important topic over a sustained period of time, promoting close collaboration among seasoned colleagues and yielding significant new insights and contributions to the knowledge base of the discipline.
