Advice On How To Write A Grant Proposal – Silverman



Research Proposal Links – The Writing Center, Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota

“A research proposal is similar in a number of ways to a project proposal; however, a research proposal addresses a particular project: academic or scientific research.  The forms and procedures for such research are well defined by the field of study, so guidelines for research proposals are generally more exacting than less formal project proposals.  Research proposals contain extensive literature reviews and must offer convincing support of need for the research study being proposed.  Doctoral dissertations begin with research proposal; the proposal must be accepted by a panel of experts (usually professors) before the actual research can begin.  In addition to providing rationale for the proposed research, the proposal must described a detailed methodology for conducting the research–a methodology consistent with requirements of the professional or academic field.  The links below offer explanations and examples of research proposals.”
