Abstract: In the current funding environment, academic scientists face choices between different external funding sources for their research projects. We explore scientists’ preferences between foundation funding and government funding. We consider dimensions related to the application and administration of grant funding. Our analysis centered on three elements: researchers’ prior grant experience; researchers’ perceptions of government and foundation funders; and an experiment in which respondents were asked to make choices between potential research sponsors. Respondents were randomly assigned to one of three scenarios, with different expected success rates. We provide evidence on the possible trade-offs perceived by scientists between different funding sources. These results suggest how researchers may respond to cutbacks in government funding.
