    To do research means to enter the world of grant applications. Finding funds to conduct your important and relevant research can be a huge task. However, it is worth it as it will contribute to better outcomes for neonates, children, youth and their families. Finding funds means searching for grants, preparing applications, submitting grants, hoping for the best ... then turning around and doing it all over again for the next research question! Sources of funding may be personnel awards such as scholarships/ fellowships/career awards, all of which are funds to support the individual researcher's salary to conduct research, or support conference attendance or travel to centres of research excellence. Or they may be operating grants to support the conduct of the research, which may be used to pay research personnel or students' salaries, purchase research equipment or supplies, pay for statistician support or host a research meeting or symposium.
