For faculty developing NIH grant proposals, there are number of resources to help. The NIH itself includes successful proposals with comments with from reviewers, tipsheets, as well as other guidance on their website.
Beyond the NIH, there are many useful web resources for general grant preparation. The Foundation Center has a “short course” for proposal preparation available for free. Social Science Research Council also has a pamphlet on proposal writing that is applicable to all disciplines.
