As I have written in these pages before, I spent 40 years as a scientist in a federal research facility. We always had a steady stream of gifted young (and senior-level) scientists and students who came from all over the United States and from around the world to work as “guest researchers” with us. For the most part, this was a great opportunity for both them and us.

There were two classifications of guest researchers: domestic and foreign, and the rules and procedures were different for both groups. In most cases, we were able to provide a monthly stipend for guest researchers. This stipend was meant to offset some of their expenses but, in general, we expected their home institutions to do most of the funding.
