Research Design

Not all grant proposals contain a Research Design section. Rather, they are reserved for Research Grants.

The Research Design portion should specify the problem being address and then designate the methodologies used. For instance, are your methods qualitative, quantitative, or mixed-design? You should also address your specific research questions.

Research Design:

  • Specifies your methods of research
  • Is used primarily for research grants

Sample #1 – providing leadership in K-12 schools

Sample #2 – mixed methodology

Sample #3 – Research Questions and Design
