How big do I need to make my leadership project in order to make my application stand out?

Hi Sarah,

This is a good question that doesn’t have a straightforward answer. Every project is different, produces different results and addresses a specific need.

However, in general, there is a correlation between project scale and the consideration it’s given on an application. As you may expect, initiatives that work on a national and/or international level are given higher consideration than those that are carried out within a school or local community. Here are some examples of different types of project scale.

School
Sports Captain
In-school fundraisers
Positions such as head student/prefect

Local/National
Inter-school academic or sporting competition
Competitions
Community fundraising event
Start up company

International scale
Awareness Campaign
Creating a website/blog
Starting clubs through connections in a number of countries.
