Standard templates and examples of proposal components
Grant proposals will require a biosketch or resume/vitae from all senior personnel. Refer to the grant program guidelines for specific instructions and page limits.
For creating agency acceptable biosketches we recommend using the National Institutes of Health (NIH) SciENcv: Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae.
Especially note that National Science Foundation biosketches are limited to two pages and must be provided through use of an NSF-approved format, which includes the SceENcv format or a fillable PDF provided by NSF.
MSU Denver Standard Grant Budget Template is a spreadsheet to help facilitate the budgeting process. It may be helpful for this process because it includes all of the standard budget lines as well as formulas to automatically calculate them, or automatically re-calculate the lines as the budget is modified. In addition, the budget lines correspond to the standard lines in the Grants.gov online forms to streamline the numbers transfer into the required forms.
A data management plan (DMP) will help you manage your data, meet funder requirements, and help others use your data if shared. For a complete guide we refer you to the MIT Libraries Data Management Plan Guide.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) Handbook for Project Evaluation (2010, 159 pp.) was developed to provide project directors and principal investigators a basic guide for evaluating educational projects. It is aimed at people who need to learn more about both the value of evaluation and how to design and carry out an evaluation, building on firmly established principles. The Handbook discusses both quantitative and qualitative evaluation methods, suggesting ways in which they can be used as complements in an evaluation strategy.
The Kellogg Foundation Logic Model Development Guide (1998, 71 pp.) focuses on the development and use of logic models to facilitate thinking, planning, and communications about program objectives.
The Basic Logic Model Example is a simplified model describing the basic components of a logic model, adapted from the University of Wisconsin-Extension, Program Action Logic Model.
The MSU Denver HRSA HCOP Logic Model is an example of a fully developed logic model created for a successful grant proposal, awarded in 2018 from the US Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Health Careers Opportunities Program (HCOP).

The US Department of Education “What Works Clearinghouse” (WWC) reviews the existing research on programs, products, practices, and policies in education. The goal is to provide educators with the information they need to make evidence-based decisions. The focus is on results from high-quality research to answer the question “What works in education?”
