NSF Proposals

Dear blog,  please forgive me for my neglect these many, long weeks!

About this time last year, I blogged about some tips that I found useful for writing NSF proposals.  It turns out that the NSF proposal I submitted last year was funded!  Let’s hope that things go as well again this year.  I sometimes get requests for full proposals I’ve submitted that have been funded, and like many researchers, I’m a bit uncomfortable posting an entire proposal.  However, this time, in the spirit of recommitting myself to interesting and reasonably frequent blogging, I’m going to post the one page project summary for my funded proposal, and I will post it right here.  I hope that some readers will find it useful.

Thanks! I think even for students who don’t plan to have an academic career, it’s still useful to learn about the process of writing grants, since it (hopefully) gives some insight into the long-term planning process for doing research. For this reason, it’d be nice to see more examples of successful grants publicly available.
