Data Management Plan. NSF requires a data management plan (DMP) for each proposal. Some NIH and other agency proposals require it. Cornell's Research Data Management Service Group (RDMSG) has an online tool to help you write your DMP. RASC can help schedule a meeting with the RDMSG to finalize your DMP.

NSF postdoctoral mentoring plan template. NSF requires a postdoctoral mentoring plan only if you budget for a postdoc.

NIH examples of multiple-PI leadership plans. This is a requirement when there are multiple PIs on an NIH grant proposal; NIH does not allow "co-PIs".
