Grant Proposals

Funded research proposals—also called grant proposals—are detailed plans for why and how to carry out research paid for by someone else. A grant proposal is similar to a thesis proposal in that it lays out a plan and rationale for a research project but differs in that its goal is to not only to obtain approval for performing research, but also to win the requisite funding for it. The resources on this page will provide a more detailed introduction to this genre of writing.
