The APUS Library does not collect student research proposals. For graduate students doing their capstone project the End of Program Assessment Manual for Graduate Studies covers what should be included in the proposal.

You can find example proposals from other universities by searching the open web via Google (or any other favorite search engine) -- look for URLs ending in .edu. For example, if you will be using Chicago or Turabian style for your paper, search for "Turabian sample research proposal" or "Chicago example research proposal", etc. Turabian is based on Chicago style: you'll find the Chicago examples helpful.

The APUS ePress abbreviated APA and MLA guides as well as links to the APUS Library's licensed copies of the complete Chicago Manual of Style and The Bluebook may be found on the APUS ePress guide:

Keep in mind, there are specific formatting requirements for proposals submitted at APUS that may differ from those you see used at other schools.  The AMU/APU requirements may be found in the End of Program Assessment Manual for Graduate Studies
