Abstract: Generally, Ghanaian Universities face of funding in their research efforts. At the University of Science and Technology (U.S.T.), Kumasi, the Research and Conference Committee (RCC) is responsible for the administration of funds that are allocated to the University for research, and it faces problems when it comes to the disbursement of the funds, because they are meagre. To enable it judiciously administer the funds, the RCC formulates rules, some of which appear rigorous, to guide it. The funds administered by the RCC are mainly for attendance at Conferences/Seminars, African Travel Grant for research purposes, individual research and for participation in academic activities at the International Center for Theoretical Physics (I.C.T.P.); Trieste, Italy. The postgraduate students at UST also conduct research of a kind at one time or the other, a condition for Obtaining a postgraduate qualification lion. Funding of their research projects is so low that it makes the programmes unattractive The recommendations stated in this paper will help strengthen the search efforts at U.S.T and other Ghanaian Universities
