Partner Guidelines

Project Scope

Sponsors identify a project with a suitable scope with a brief description of what they expect the students to achieve and what support the sponsor will provide.


The sponsoring agency must have a liaison who the student team can communicate with on the details of the project. This liaison must be able to provide guidance, resources and information, and assure that projects are safe and appropriate.


The sponsoring organization is asked to provide adequate workspace for the IQP team. They are also asked to provide Wi-Fi and, if available, basic office services such as printing. This workspace can be used as a meeting space for weekly meetings that include the student team, IQP advisors, and the liaison.
