The Office of Research Strategy and Development maintains a library of recent successful grant proposals written by Brown faculty.  Redacted versions of these proposals are available, by request, only to members of the Brown community.  If you are interested in receiving proposals that resulted in awards from any of the funding programs listed below, please write to [email protected].  For further insights, we also recommend that you speak to colleagues who have had past success with programs of interest.  Sample proposals also are available on the NIH National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, NEH, OpenGrants, and other websites (e.g., Jabberwocky).

Currently the library includes proposals to these funding programs. Please let us know if you would like to “donate” a proposal to the library and if you have suggestions or requests for funding programs to add to the list below:
