This is not going to be a specific question and may be off-topic for this site: I'm looking for advice, tips, or a template for writing a fellowship proposal.
I'm in my first computer science postdoc, in the UK, and have been encouraged to to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship in the US.
However, I have no idea what a fellowship proposal should look like. I been reading online and it looks like there are 3 basic components: the abstract, the main/body text, and a 'bigger picture' closing paragraph/summary.
For now, I am mostly concerned with what should go into the main/body text. As I understand it, this sectino should describe:
- why the proposed research is important (describe problem, how the research will address it or fill a gap in knowledge, define project scope, etc.)
- what my goal is (clearly stated research questions + objectives)
- how I will achieve my goal (discuss experiments, techniques, data collection methods, etc. and include a month-by-month schedual)
- what the expected outcomes are
Does that sound right? Any tips or even better, an example application that I can look at?
