I am in need of a roughly 4-5 page proposals for Graduate Student Research Grant
I am in need of a roughly 4-5 page proposals for Graduate Student Research Grant Program. Below are the requirements and after I've listed suggested research questions. The idea is concentrated really on international student-athletes tranisiton into the college and transitioning out, what challenges and aids are there for them. - A maximum of $7,500 will be awarded to each grant recipient to support the collection, analyses and dissemination of their research. Funding requests for educational expenses cannot exceed $2,000, funding for hardware (e.g., laptop computer) not central to the collection of research may not exceed $1,000 (please see the FAQ for this program for further clarification) and funding for conference travel/participation may not exceed $1,500. Indirect costs will not be funded. Funds will be disbursed to the appropriate unit at the recipient’s institution (e.g., sponsored projects, campus foundation). An initial payment for 90 percent of the award will be disbursed after terms and conditions are signed by the designated institutional officer and, if necessary, after human subjects approval has been granted. The final 10 percent of the award will be disbursed after the grantee submits their final expense report. Application Requirements Proposal. Only proposals adhering to the required format will be reviewed. All sections of the proposal are limited to 8.5′′x11′′ pages with one-inch margins on all sides, in Times New Roman (or similar) 12- point font. The following sections are required and should be merged into a single PDF document: 1. Title Page. Please list research study title, name and institution of the student applicant, the applicant’s address, phone number and email address, and the name and contact information for the institutional grant or foundation officer who will support the applicant, if funded. 2. Proposal Narrative. (Limited to five double-spaced pages.) The narrative should be structured as follows: a. Abstract. (Maximum of 100 words.) The abstract should be a summary of the proposed research, anticipated findings, and implications. b. Research Questions. (Maximum of 100 words.) List the research question(s) that guide the proposed study. c. Methodology. How will the research question(s) be answered? Describe the research design, sample/subject selection and recruitment, means of data collection, instruments/protocols to be used, methods of analyses and anticipated research limitations. (Note: Survey instruments, interview protocols, etc., may be included, in full, in the “Additional Materials” section of the proposal.) d. Significance/Potential Implications. Discuss the significance of the research and the practical application of your anticipated findings to the NCAA membership (e.g., institutions of higher education, athletics administrators and/or student-athletes). 4. Bibliography. Provide citations for all works cited in the narrative using APA, MLA, or the citation style of your discipline. 5. Timeline. (Not to exceed one page.) List the beginning and termination dates for the proposed research. A list of the projected dates of completion of major milestones in the progress of the proposed research should be included. This list must include dates for submission of the research brief (fall 2023) and final manuscript or thesis to the NCAA. 6. Budget and Budget Justification. (Not to exceed one page.) The line item budget should total no more than the maximum award amount of $7,500. Research expenses are intended to support the gathering, analyzing, and/or dissemination of the data, including academic conference travel. The justification must provide support for how funds will be used in the research project. Proposed research questions: - What are the pre-transition needs for international student-athletes at the NCAA D1 level? - What are the post-transition needs for international student-athletes at the NCAA D1 level? - What pre-transition student-athlete support programming exists for international college athletes at the NCAA D1 level? -What post-transition student-athlete support programming exists for international college athletes at the NCAA D1 level?
