Dan P Posted August 26, 2010 Share Posted August 26, 2010 Hello, I am trying to write the NSF GRF research proposal. So far I have read several winning proposals (If anyone is interesting http://www.rachelcsmith.com/ collects a few of them) but they all tend to be simple field research that would "save the world." In pure mathematics, its hard to make that claim that proving a theorem will have the same impact. Most of the time, mathematics research is used by other researchers and not the broad public. If there are any pure mathemeticians out there (combinatiricists, algebraists, topologists, geometers... ect) who won the proposal, how did you get that "save the world" impact into your research proposal? Is there anyway you could arrange it so I may read your proposal so I can get a grasp on how to do this properly?
