Uncommon Student Project Proposal

Writing a project proposal:

  • Clearly state the project goal and how you will reach it.
  • Answer these questions in your proposal: Why? Who? What? Where? When? How?
  • Write the proposal in words you know. Keep it clear and simple. Define any specialized vocabulary.
  • Get necessary permissions BEFORE submitting the proposal. Avoid: "If I get permission, I will . . . " Evaluators need to see a reasonable chance of success.
  • Ask an adult unfamiliar with your idea to read your proposal. He/she can tell you if there are details missing. Then improve your proposal before submitting it.
