Your proposal should include the following:
- Your project proposal,
- Why you’d like to execute on this particular project,
- The reason you’re the best individual to do so.
Your proposal should also include details of your academic, industry, and/or open source development experience, and other details as you see fit. An explanation of your development methodology is a good idea, as well. It is always helpful to include contact information as well, as it will not be automatically shared with your would-be mentors as part of the proposal process.
If the organization you want to work with has a specific proposal template they would like you to use, it will be made available to you to fill in when submitting your proposal. Check the forms section of the Calico area of the Palisadoes website beforehand.
Regardless of what you include in your proposal, we recommend you speak to the mentoring organization(s) you are applying to about what they are looking for in a proposal to give you the best chance of success in your proposal.
