Why apply for external funding?
• The writing of proposals is a great intellectual

•
•
•
exercise as it provides focus and crystallizes ideas
Often catalyzes collaborations within and outside of
the University

your scholarship and recognition in the community

pursue your research and dreams
Supports students- a) shortens time to degree and
