Example Proposal

All the things your grant proposal needs to include:

  • Description of the theoretical and/or practical importance of the research you intend to conduct
  • Description of the research methodology you will use
  • How or why you chose your sample size (this may or may not include a power analysis; consider thinking about the smallest effect size of interest, aka SESOI)
  • Description of the study costs : You can apply for up to £10,000. Don’t worry if you don’t need the whole pot. So, let us know how much funding will be needed and how will it be spent.
    • Don’t forget to include the total study costs in addition to any extra funding you may need for bonus payments or custom screeners - (Note that the 33% service charge (and VAT where applicable) on each participant payment still applies as usual!)
  • Evidence that you’ve preregistered key aspects of your study. You can do this by including a link to your As Predicted-preregistration. (Wondering why you should preregister at all? Read more here!)
  • Explain how you’ll make your findings, study materials, analysis code and data openly available once the study is complete. (Please read about the importance of open, reproducible science).
