Abstract

Over 30 years of operation, the Puerto Rico Project Center (PRPC) has partnered with more than 40 sponsor organizations to complete Interactive Qualifying Projects (IQPs). A sponsor represents the biggest variable for student experience. Our project evaluated past IQPs and sponsors, along with Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) in Puerto Rico to generate sponsor leads. This data was displayed in a website that organized sponsors by distance, programmatic foci, and assets as well as targeted materials for automating sponsor contact. In addition, we identified guidelines to improve sponsor-student relationships through a survey and interviews with PRPC student alumni.
