Proposal library - Samples of successful grant proposals

Research & Proposal Development Services maintains a library of recent successful grant proposals written by University of Nevada, Reno faculty. This library has been created to support our faculty in their grant writing and has been made possible by recent award recipients who have generously agreed to share their work. These proposals are available for viewing only, and only to full-time University of Nevada, Reno faculty members.

If you are interested in viewing a successful proposal from any of the funding programs listed below, please submit a proposal request, and our office will contact you to discuss the loan.
