Setting Margins

You can set page margins by setting individual margin, but geometry package make it easy.
For example, to have 0.5cm margin all around (for ARC proposal), do:

\usepackage[margin=0.5cm]{geometry} %% 0.5 cm margin all around

More specific controls can be done like:

\usepackage[total={6.5in, 8.75in}, top=1.2in, left=0.9in, include foot]{geometry}

See geometry package manual for more details.
