The Grant Proposal Archive contains successful grant proposals in the humanities and social sciences submitted by Laney Graduate School graduate students. The proposals are categorized according to the stage of research they fund; most are for dissertation research, and some are for write-up work or for postdoctoral work. The archive is growing, and more items will be added as they become available. The posted files contain the project description part of the proposals, and you will also find links to the funding agencies.
