[Cryptography] Non-DoD crypto funding? A contradiction in terms?

"From 2000 to 2010, fewer than 15% of the papers at
CRYPTO that acknowledged U.S. extramural funding
acknowledged DoD funding.  In 2011, this rose to 25%.
 From 2012 to2015, it rose to 65%.  Nowadays, many
cryptographers put together a large patchwork of
grants, *the largest of which are usually DoD.*"

I'm afraid that *funding* is the biggest hurdle
to achieving Rogaway's goals.  It's somewhat
easier for Rogaway, as he has tenure, but how
does a young crypto researcher get non-DoD
