Hi this is Laura Turner and today I'm going to talk to you about how to write a proposal. The first thing you need to think about is what you are writing the proposal for. Is it for a grant, is it for a research study, something, anything you really need to write it for. What is it going to be for? And who are you going to need to give it to, and who do you need to talk to about how to properly format it. So this, what I'm going to give you today, is what I have used in the past to apply for grants. And what I know about in general about writing proposals. So first off, you are going to actually give an abstract or a project description about what you are going to do, either if you are making , if you are traveling somewhere to present a paper and you need money for that, for a grant. Go ahead and explain in your abstract what you'll be doing at that conference and why is it important to your field of study. Or your field as a professional. Then you should give the proper materials for this proposal if it requires an acceptance letter to prove that you are going. If it requires a letter of recommendation from a professor to show that you are actually in the department. Because remember the people you are going to be submitting to for the most part do not know you. So they are going to be looking at you for proposal as itself rather then looking at you in the face. And then if you are applying for money you should definitely have an itemized budget page that states what you are going to need the money for if you are making sort of plane travel, if you are going to be doing train travel, if you are going to be spending your gas money, whatever. You need to put that down. And also they will often require a daily coverage sort of daily stipend for your food. So be sure to mention how long you are going to be there and how much you need for your daily food intake. Ok so go ahead and get all that stuff together and finally anything else that you need. And for example this letter, I needed to apply for emergency funding for the grant. Because I had missed the grant application date. So know whether or not you can apply after the date it expired and if you can get all the information that you need in order to do that. Ok. And so final thoughts, have somebody who knows about what you are applying for, actually double check your proposal for any mistakes or anything you've left out. And make sure that you can get your money and you can get it for what you need it to go too.
