My Grant Proposal Topic is The Correlation Between Testosterone levels and The Masculinization of Black Women
a. As a black woman, I’ve had to live with the stereotype that black women are more “masculine” and therefore we do not feel pain or have more higher tolerance in pain than other
women. With this topic I want to prove that the social stereotype of “black
women are more masculine than other women” wrong. I will do this by looking at testosterone levels in cis women ages 18-40 of different identities and comparing them to cis black women. I would measure testosterone levels by having participants take a simple blood that will be done early in the morning because that is when testosterone levels are normally at the highest.
For this assignment, you will submit a complete draft of your grant proposal which includes the following: Personal, Relevant Background and Future Goals Statement and Graduate Research Plan Statement. Both statements must address NSF’s review criteria of Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts.
The maximum length of the Personal, Relevant Background and Future Goals Statement is three (3) pages. The maximum length of the Graduate Research Plan Statement is two (2) pages. These page limits include all references, citations, charts, figures, images, and lists of publications and presentations. For this look at the document that says “things to help with a personal statement”.
Applicants must follow the instructions in the GRFP Application Module for completing each section of the application. The statements must be written using the following guidelines:
standard 8.5″ x 11″ page size
Times New Roman font for all text, Cambria Math font for equations, Symbol font for non-alphabetic characters (it is recommended that equations and symbols be inserted as an image), no smaller than 11-point, except text that is part of an image
1″ margins on all sides, no text inside 1″ margins (no header, footer, name, or page number)
No less than single-spacing (approximately 6 lines per inch). Do not use line spacing options such as “exactly 11 point,” that are less than single spaced.
Review Criteria:
Intellectual Merit: The Intellectual Merit criterion encompasses the potential to advance knowledge; and
Broader Impacts: The Broader Impacts criterion encompasses the potential to benefit society and contribute to the achievement of specific, desired societal outcomes.
The following elements should be considered in the review for both criteria:
What is the potential for the proposed activity to:
a. Advance knowledge and understanding within its own field or across different fields (Intellectual Merit); and b. Benefit society or advance desired societal outcomes (Broader Impacts)?
To what extent do the proposed activities suggest and explore creative, original, or potentially transformative concepts?
Is the plan for carrying out the proposed activities well-reasoned, well-organized, and based on a sound rationale? Does the plan incorporate a mechanism to assess success?
How well qualified is the individual, team, or organization to conduct the proposed activities?
Are there adequate resources available to the PI (either at the home organization or through collaborations) to carry out the proposed activities?
