The Bug Geek

Insects. Doing Science. Other awesome, geeky stuff.

Money, money, money, money…Moooh-nay!

Ok, so this is a question for the academics:

I’m playing the fun game called Scrounging for Dollars.

Other than the obvious ones (i.e. federal/provincial government granting agencies), hit me with your best little-known, obscure sources of possible funding…keeping in mind I’m a Canuk…no matter how piddly the award.

I’ve got my grant-writing hat on right now, and I’m ready to produce tons of  Why I am Am Awesome and Deserve Funding text.

Bring it on!!!

    what about bug lover clubs? or those nature foundations about making sure the pollinators don’t die off? environmental groups? bug collector groups? women in science scholarships. Gardening related organizations?

    What good will your research do? WHo will be stoked about what you find out? Hit those people up.

    bribery?
