Obstacles Encountered by Faculty Members at Non-Science Colleges at Kuwait University in Sponsored Projects of Scientific Research

Auther : Suad A. Al-Furaih, Abdul Razzak k. Al-Shayji

     The study aimed at identifying the most important obstacles facing sponsored research at Kuwait University.  A questionnaire consisting of 29 items was designed to solicit the opinions of members of staff at the non-science colleges with regard to three types of problems, namely administrative, technical and personal.  These colleges included Education, Social Sciences, Administrative sciences, law, Sharia and Islamic Studies, and Arts.

     Results of the study indicated that the major obstacles were inherent in the excessive number of procedures that reduce their incentives to apply for funding.  The second type of obstacles were technical, namely the inadequacy of qualified research assistants.  The final type of obstacles refer to the preoccupation of the faculty members in administrative duties and teaching assignments.

     In the light of these results, the study provides a number of recommendations that could reduce the obstacles for funding of scientific research in higher education.
