When scientists at small colleges and universities seek research grants, they often run into challenges not faced by their colleagues at major institutions. It is, nonetheless, possible to maintain a research program at a small institution, says the writer, if people have a great deal of passion and a little ingenuity. Issues to consider at various career junctures when navigating the grant landscape include: (1) Campus culture; (2) Workload; (3) Nature of the work (don't overreach); (4) Administrative support; (5) Facilities; and (6) Alternative programs.
