When you're all done with your proposal, it needs a Cover Page to tell
the funding source what the proposal is and who submitted it. This will
be what the funding agency sees first, so it should give specific information.
Some funding agencies may specify the information and format required on
the cover page. If a format is specified, follow it. Although the
Cover Page may include many things, at a minimum, it usually includes six
pieces of information. In this section, you will learn what information
is needed for the cover page of your proposal.
Cover pages are also called "Title Pages." Usually, a foundation or
agency will provide its own cover or title page. If the foundation or agency
to which you are applying does not have a standard cover or title
page, you might find this example useful.
There are six pieces of information you should include on your title
The following is an example of a Title Page:
The NAME AND ADDRESS OF THE AGENCY to whom your proposal is being submitted.
The NAME OF YOUR ORGANIZATION and its address.
The TITLE of your proposal.
The proposed PERIOD OF FUNDING (i.e., your project length).
YOUR NAME (and the name of other co-investigators).
