Grad students and postdocs who are in the midst of writing fellowship applications, and especially F30 or F31 or F32 NIH NRSA applications, usually find it helpful to see examples of successful fellowship proposals. Reading funded proposals provides insight into how the scientific proposal is structured, and the expected quality of the essays and training plan. There are a few sample applications available online that can orient you to the structure of a well written application. Former Vanderbilt postdoctoral fellow, Chris Smith, has shared his F31 predoctoral and F32 postdoctoral fellowship applications — and their corresponding summary statements from reviewers — on his blog. If you want to get more results, change the project funding period to include previous years.
