Full proposal on Maternal Stress in terms of Pregnancy Risks. Attached is abstract that can be used but can be edited!
It should be no longer than 2 pages (11 font size minimum) including any potential Figures (optional), but not including references. It should contain a “background/Significance” sections that coherently and concisely reviews necessary previous literature (i.e. it should explain why your research is necessary). You should cite at least 5 scientific sources throughout your proposal (more are fine) to back up your statements. (Hint: it’s best to use the number system  so you don’t waste valuable space on in text citations). It should also state your long term and short goals for your research and already give an idea of what it is you want to investigate (but safe the details for your approach section). The background should lead to your “2-3 specific goals” that clearly state what your proposal aims to investigate (and how). Together, these two section should be ~ 1 page in length. Next, describe your detailed “approach” (i.e. how are you going to collect the data) including all necessary information (species, population, samples size, tests, measures, stats, etc). Plan to spend at least 0.5-0.75 pages on this and then finish with your expected outcomes and an “impact statement” to remind the reader again why all of this is worth their (tax payers) money.
