How many of us have heard that getting grants is much harder now than it was in the “good old days?”  Well, I have only been researching full time since I began my postgraduate research, which was 11 years ago, and I don’t think I see a change.  Maybe I am not old enough to really see the difference, but I honestly think getting funding has always been, and will always be, challenging.  However, I think most scientists are open to finding alternative sources, and apply for many more grants than previously.
