Proposal Resource Library

Proposal resource library

The proposal resource library is a one-stop shop for developing proposals. The suite of resources below is largely applicable to a variety of funding agencies, with information, boilerplate, links, and more related to key topics such as DEI, entrepreneurship, and workforce development. Browse these documents to learn more about relevant resources at FSE/ASU and generate ideas for developing successful technical narratives and supplementary documents.

You can browse collections of sample documents by clicking on the appropriate links on this page and each agency-specific page. In addition to samples, in some cases we have contact information for PIs who prefer to share their materials on an individual basis. Note that, while all guides/templates are available to anyone with an ASU account, you must request access to the samples. This ensures an additional layer of security for those files; approval will be granted ASAP.

The proposal resource library is constantly growing and adapting. If you have any requests or suggestions, or if you are interested in contributing materials, please get in touch with Daniel Froid, Program Manager in ORIEN.
