In general the APEEE endeavours to strike a balance between different objectives and strives for a good distribution of projects over different cycles, sections and sites, in a particular year and over time.


  1. Projects can be submitted/organised by any member of the school community, including parents, students and staff of either the school or the APEEE/APEEE Services. Projects submitted through this call cannot be sponsored or organised by people external to the school community. Income generated by the project should be reinvested in the action; for-profit initiatives will be viewed unfavourably. Projects requiring close collaboration with the school must present written confirmation of the support of the school director or a deputy director. Projects must be submitted within the dates laid out above to be eligible for funding during the period.

Selection Criteria

Projects will be weighed based on characteristics defined above as well as the following general criteria:

  1. quality of the design and implementation methodology (e.g. clear lines of responsibility, a priori agreement with the school when applicable, a clear implementation plan, clear reporting processes and timelines)
  2. expected impact of the proposal, including
    • total number of students or parents affected or potentially affected by the project
    • coverage of different sites, cycles/levels and sections
    • perceived seriousness of the issue
    • potential efficacy of the project
  3. general financial viability of the project, including the contribution required from the APEEE and whether the remaining funding is assured
