The following is a sample of a previously funded SRF Proposal. It includes all content items as described in the SRF Policies and Procedures.
SRF Sample Proposal
Proposal Cover Sheet
All Student Research Fund Proposals must include an application form (also called a cover sheet). A separate cover sheet is used for Research and Presentation awards. Both cover sheets are available as a writable PDF.
Note: The PDFs are writable, but cannot be saved after completion. Complete the form and then print, sign, and place it on top of the full proposal.
Institutional Review Board
If your project makes use of human beings as research subjects, it must be approved by the Institutional Review Board. Do not begin collecting data from human subjects before receiving IRB approval.
Animal Care and Use
All use of vertebrate animals (fish, amphibians, birds, reptiles, and mammals) in research and teaching must be approved by the Otterbein University Animal Care and Use Committee (OUACUC) and must adhere to the Otterbein Animal Care and Use Policy. If your research project will be making use of animals you are required to submit the Animal Use and Care form with your proposal.
