Occasionally, it's helpful to take a look at someone else's proposal to get you started moving in the right direction and so, we've provided a few samples of successful proposals written by BSU faculty members.
National Endowment for the Humanities
· The Recent Grant Awards is a list of short descriptions of current NEH awards sorted by year and type. http://www.neh.gov/news/recentawards.html
· Another helpful NEH tool is their Press Release Archive which provides more in depth information on awards such as the purpose, the recipients and program/project descriptions. http://www.neh.gov/news/archive.html
National Science Foundation
· Although the NSF Award Search tool provides only the abstracts for awards, it provides insight into the types of programs and projects NSF is funding by Directorate. The proposals themselves are the confidential intellectual property of the submitting organizations. The easiest way to get a copy of a proposal is to contact the primary investigator for the award and ask that person if he or she will share it with you. http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/tab.do?dispatch=2
· The NSF Funding Trends tool provides statistical and funding information (e.g., by state/Institution, by Top Institutions, Funding History by Account and FY, etc.). http://dellweb.bfa.nsf.gov/
National Institutes of Health
· The NIH RePORTER is an electronic tool that allows users to search a repository of NIH-funded research projects and access publications and patents resulting from NIH funding. (Information is drawn from several extant databases such as eRA databases, Medline, PubMed Central, the NIH Intramural Database, and iEdison). http://projectreporter.nih.gov/reporter.cfm
