This list of articles related to assessing undergraduate research (some specific to the humanities) might be useful in general or for the assessment piece of proposals. The SURE and CURE website (the last item on the list), the work of Dr. David Lopatto at Grinnell, is really worth viewing. He presented at the CUR conference last year, and the session was packed to overflowing.
