Remember that the reviewers are people too. Science as an industry can seem cold and unfeeling, but it is run by people with biases and emotions who will respond to your honesty and unique life story. Also, start work early and, if your advisor is willing, communicate with your advisor often to ensure you're on the right track.

Start early, iterate often, and seek feedback from lots of different people (even if you feel like you're being needy). I talked to two subfield experts, two scientists in different fields altogether, and three non-scientists, and their collective feedback helped immeasurably, and all in different ways.

Write as many drafts as you can and get feedback from multiple people. Also, make sure to really explain your broader impacts in your personal statement. For the research proposal, don't worry so much about the cost of your experiment or the overall feasibility, just show that you can think like a scientist.
