Tips and Tricks
Crowdfunding is a new way for creative people to find funding for projects, and the SciFund Challenge, hosted by RocketHub, is helping 49 grad students, postdocs and researchers fund research projects around the world.
Do check out the projects that are listed at the moment. If this effort goes well, there will probably be another call for more funding proposals. Some of the existing proposals also include some interesting ways to present scientific concepts to the general public.
And if you're not in the sciences, but would like to find a small amount of funding for your creative project, check out RocketHub and Kickstarter — you'll find everything from wearable art to student film projects to developing sustainable technologies and more.
