Masters Project Call for Clients
The faculty of Emporia State's Instructional Design and Technology program would like to invite you to participate as a client for the Masters Projects.

If you are interested, please contact Zeni Colorado-Resa email@example.com with your intention to submit a Request for Proposal (RFP) as soon as possible.
RFPs are due by 11:59PM CST on Friday, August 16, 2019. Your submission of an RFP does not guarantee your proposal will be assigned to a student. This will depend on a number of factors including, but not limited to: the number of proposals received, the quality of the proposals, and students’ willingness to work on the proposal.
Note: If the scope of your project is too large for a student to manage within a semester, there might be a readjustment of the scope based on mutual agreement between the client and the student.
Request for Proposals must include:
- Name of Client/Organization
- Brief description of the client
- Brief description of the audience
- Description of the instructional problem or scenario, including scope (please keep the scope within a feasible range – a project that can be finished within a semester along with the ID process and course requirements)
- Requirements: What specific items should the proposal/instructional solution address? This should include required or requested technology if known.
