The CCTS has partnered with successfully funded investigators from across its partner network to develop this compendium of best practice grant writing samples. Our goal is to share the wisdom of their award-winning experiences in communicating about research in support of both scientific excellence and discovery.

We update this resource on a regular basis to keep it current with the latest sponsor requirements. Check back often to see the most recent examples of well-crafted grants.
