Whether this is your first experience with proposal writing or you want to critique and improve on previous efforts, a variety of resources is available to help guide you in planning, organizing, and writing a proposal. Don't overlook the following possibilities.
The University of Pittsburgh's Office of Research has administrative responsibility for all University research and must review all proposals submitted by University personnel.
If you are writing a proposal for actual research funding, rather than for a course assignment, be sure to contact the Office early in the process. They can provide assistance with required information, policies, and procedures.
