After you write your proposal, create a table of contents. Mission Statement In 50 words or less, what is the mission of your project? Most importantly, this allows the reader to have an immediate understanding of what you are proposing right from the start without having to search for what you are trying to do embedded in the narrative of the proposal.
Following is an example of a mission statement from a successful grant proposal: Abstract The well-written abstract is the single most important part of the proposal. Often, initial proposal review, or "first cuts", are based on the abstract alone.
The abstract should not be the last part of the proposal that is written. Deadline pressures prior to submission of the proposal are often intense. The writing of this crucial aspect of the proposal should be given the time and consideration it deserves. The abstract should be written early in the proposal preparation process, and modified as needed as the proposal develops.
The abstract be understandable to a scientifically or technically literate lay reader, and it should be suitable for publication.
The abstract should be written in the third person. It should include objectives, methods to be employed, and the potential impact of the project.
Statement of Need This is where you present the problem you are trying to solve. Our advice is as follows: Stick to one problem. Avoid circular logic in your thinking and in the development of your statement of need. Circular logic decrees that the lack of a solution is the problem.
Requesting scholarship funds as a solution to the lack of scholarship funds is an example of circular logic. A more convincing argument is based on a problem with a much larger scope. For example, women are greatly underrepresented in engineering-related fields and scholarship funds will enable more women to pursue engineering as a career choice.
Use a logical progression in your statement of need starting as globally as possible. You will need to prove that you have an understanding of the problem and the latest research on the problem.
For example, if you are proposing a computer lab to serve a minority population your statement of need should focus on the "digital divide. Close with a discussion of what else is being done, and lead into the project narrative with a brief discussion of how your idea is better or different.
To do this, you will need to cite that latest body of research and specific projects that are currently happening and how yours is different and better.
Preparation is essential, and you are encouraged to pick up the phone and call people who are working on similar projects, call program officers at agencies, and gather as much information as possible. This is an area where the Sponsored Research Services office can offer guidance, advice, and assistance.
