Guidance from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) on writing a grant proposal. Although some of the content is specific to NIH, much of it applies to writing a grant proposal for any funding source. The bulleted lists of tips seem especially helpful. (Note: If you are applying for an NIH grant, be sure to use the newest instructions for the type of grant that you are seeking. The instructions sometimes change, and so some details in "Writing Your Application" might be out of date when you apply.)
