  • Financial packages given to fund research interests. These can be given to either social or natural scientists and can come from a variety of sources, including federal (i.e., tax-based) programs, nongovernmental organizations, and private research institutions. Researchers must usually apply for grants in advance and present a convincing argument to explain for what purpose and in what amount the capital is needed. Often, various researchers will compete for a single grant, and the process can therefore be quite competitive. Arguments have pivoted around whether government funding is appropriate for noninstrumental projects and if private funding is more efficiently allocated.
