Library of Successful Fellowship Proposals

The Graduate Division maintains a library of successful grant proposals. Students can make an appointment to browse the physical copies of proposals by appointment or request access to the digital file of most proposals by emailng We encourage students to view and take notes, however the library may not be removed from the GRC and no screenshots, photos or copies can be taken.


We currently have sample proposals for the following:

Ford Foundation - Predoctoral and Dissertation

National Science Foundation - Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GFRP)

National Institute of Health

Department of Energy

University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (PPFP)


Additonal resources: Fellowship & Grant Writing
