Questions to Consider when Submitting Your Proposal


  • What issue or problem will your project address?
  • Why is this issue important to your community?
  • What are your program objectives? How do your objectives address the issue?
  • What do you see as the impact that your project will have in your community? How will it affect change?
  • What are you performance measures and how will you determine success and impact?
  • How does your project meet the MEPI Student Leaders Program objectives?
  • How will you implement your project? What staff, materials and other resources will you need to complete the project, and how will you secure them?
  • Will you work with another organization or will another organization/institution provide financial or in-kind assistance? In-kind assistance means that they will help you but not charge you for that help.
  • How will you raise awareness for your project?
  • How will you involve the community?
  • What challenges and setbacks might your project face, and how will you overcome them?
  • How will your project encourage others to support your cause?
