Client Proposal Guidelines

If you are interested in participating as a PAE client, we invite you to submit a project proposal. Proposals can be very specific or quite general depending on the needs of the organization. All proposals are vetted by a faculty member before being made available to students.

Proposals should include:

  • Your name, title, organization, and contact information
  • Description of the goals and functions of your organization 
  • Potential title for your project 
  • Description of the issue you would like the student(s) to analyze (two to three paragraphs is a suitable length) 
  • Brief explanation of how you expect to use the final product

Please complete the PAE Proposal Submission Form and send it via email to pae@hks.harvard.edu by mid-August.

Students have a wide range of project possibilities to choose from and we therefore cannot promise that your proposal will be selected. Nevertheless, we very much appreciate your willingness to offer our students real-world experiences in public service, and we hope that you will be among the very satisfied clients we have served through this worthwhile program.

For further information, or to place your name on our mailing list to receive the annual PAE Call for Proposals, please contact the PAE Program.
