The following idea occured to me: It seems very hard to get scholarships into Primary and Secondary schools because everyone goes for them. And also very hard to get scholarships for undergraduate because of the small number of them avaliable and small number of universities. However, it's much easier to get graduate study scholarships mainly because not many people go for them and more are given. Does this trend continue for post doc positions? It would be salary instead of scholarship in the case of post doc but same sort of thing. Would it be even easier for docs to get funding for their post doc research to the point where almost any doc can find a position somewhere in the world?
