Sample Behavioral Research Grant Applications
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) frequently receives requests for examples of successfully funded grant applications. Several investigators and their organizations agreed to let the Behavioral Research Program (BRP) post excerpts of their grant applications online. The applications in the table below are excellent examples of grantsmanship.
Orientation to Sample Applications
BRP is grateful to the investigators for enabling our Program to deliver this valuable resource. Certain details are redacted, such as social security numbers, budgets, and home addresses. Additionally, to minimize the file size, BRP excluded sections of the original application that provide routine details, such as lists of performance sites and key personnel, biographical sketches, and bibliographies. As a result, the grant applications accessible through the links below do not include all sections that appear in the SF424 (R&R) used to apply for grants.
The text of the grant applications is copyrighted. Investigators and others may use the text from these same applications only for nonprofit educational purposes provided the content remains unchanged and the Principal Investigator(s), their organization(s), and NCI are credited.
Accessibility. Please note, individuals using assistive technology (such as a screen reader, Braille reader, etc.) who experiences difficulty accessing any information in the sample applications, should send an email to BRP 508 Accessible.
