?  Hiring outside talent is not unusual for Canadian and UK
research grants.  A music professor using part of a grant to hire
a programmer (generally to do the "technical side" of an
electroacoustic composition), or an engineering professor using
part of a grant to hire professional musicians to perform
something (which he will then analyze), is entirely normal.

I readily acknowledge that writing grant applications is a very
specific skill -- each granting agency wants to see something
slightly different in its applications; a perfect application for
one agency might be a terrible application for another one.
