Ideally you will focus your proposal on a project that is similar to the work your present lab is conducting, or a topic you find interesting. For this exercise will be using the NSF proposal as a template (see: https:// drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/189a4zSxoEE-ddigR5kiCwKev6NoN43xs)

Introductions serve as a way to familiarize readers of your grant with the “why” you are choosing to do this work. It is essential for them to understand that this is an important problem worth pursuing. Methods are an essential bridge from question to results. It can be tricky communicating detailed procedures into a small space on a grant application. We will focus on how to distill this.
