Fifteen investigators and their organizations agreed to let the Behavioral Research Program (BRP) post excerpts of their grant applications to demonstrate what a successful grant application looks like.
BRP is grateful to the investigators who enabled our program to deliver this valuable resource. Please note that 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, SF424 (R&R) sections do not appear in these samples.
The text of the grant applications is copyrighted. Investigators and others may use the text from these applications only for nonprofit educational purposes provided that the content remains unchanged and that the Principal Investigator(s), their organization(s), and NCI are credited.
Accessibility. If you are using assistive technology, such as a screen reader or Braille reader, and have trouble accessing information from the sample applications, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
