Guide for Writing a Grant Proposal
This is a guide that was prepared by S. Joseph Levine, Ph.D. and in his own words was "created to provide both instructions on how to write a funding proposal and actual examples of a completed proposal. The Guide is designed as a tool for advanced graduate students and others to learn more about the actual proposal writing process." (This Guide is a companion to the Guide for Writing and Presenting Your Thesis or Dissertation.)
