To assist applicants in preparing their proposals, the archives include examples of prior successful applications. PLEASE NOTE: These are not being presented as models of THE right way to complete an application. As you will see, although all these were successful proposals, they differ one from another. Also, the application instructions for the 2015-16 year will differ somewhat based on what we have learned in earlier years.Be sure to follow the instructions for the year in which you are applying. Having said that, it is hoped that these examples, along with the extensive application instructions, will help guide candidates in constructing clear, detailed, and compelling proposals.
