Sample Grant Proposals

We have access to a library of successful graduate student grant proposals which are available for in-office use with advance request (hard copies only).


We also recommend the following resources:

Writing Fellowship and Grant Proposals: A Guide for Graduate Students
This 1994 GGC publication includes winning applications for grants from AAUW, Luce/ACLS, Charlotte Newcombe, Ford Foundation, Fulbright, IREX, Javits, NSF, and SSRC. They are not the most current examples, but all were funded by the various agencies. The book may be reviewed in the GGC office and, for especially trustworthy sorts, checked out for a few days.

The Office of Research at the University of Tennessee Knoxville has a library of funded grant proposals (much like what we hope to offer here). A number of them are password protected, and most are for faculty/institutional grants, but there are some relevant links here.

IDPAS, SUNY Stony Brook’s Interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Anthropological Sciences, makes available a number of sample applications for the NSF DDIG and one for the NSF GRFP.

Tom Blackburn and Jossey-Bass offer links to a selection of funded science proposals (again, most not at the graduate student level, but still useful) in connection with the 2003 book Getting Science Grants.

Sample Fulbright and NSF proposals, part of the Dissertation Proposal Workshop by Michael Watts.

NIH and NIAID sample applications.

If you have a successful grant proposal you’d like to share with us (which can be posted anonymously and with IU password protection), please let us know!
