How should I write my proposal (especially the Project Plan)? Can I get help?
Try to write clear, easy-to-understand prose that is specific but not
overly technical. Remember, as your proposal goes through the system,
readers of your proposal will include colleagues who may not be
familiar with your discipline or with the particular focus of your
study. There are three useful resources you should consult, all found
on the sabbatical website: “Writing a Compelling Sabbatical Proposal”,
"Guide to Completing the Proposal", and “Sample Proposals”
that you can review. It also makes good sense to share drafts of your
proposal with your colleagues and/or with someone at the Writing Center.
Former USRC members run a sabbatical proposal workshop each summer

proposal is submitted by July 1. If you are interested in the
pre-read, please submit your
