How to submit

Welcome to our introductory page for online submissions. 

For the 2019 cycle, the results of the selection process have been announced in October 2018.

The submission process for the 2020 cycle will be communicated soon.
 

Selection criteria

Each submitted project must:

  • align with one or more of the Foundation’s key axes
  • be beneficial to the general interest
  • be located in a country in which Alstom is represented
  • be measurable in terms of its outcome and impact on the communities concerned
  • be realistic and feasible within the budget and deadlines
  • involve local stakeholders and local team/management
  • be implemented by a fully competent partner organisation
    be in line with the Alstom Foundation’s Ethics Charter 

Role of the Alstom Promoter

All projects must be submitted by an NGO together with an Alstom employee acting in the role of the Project Promoter. 

The Promoter will work with the NGO to prepare the project file and will validate the file prior to its submission. If the project is selected, the Promoter will assist the Secretariat in monitoring its implementation.

Each Alstom employee is allowed to support one project submission only per year.

If you have a good project to submit but don't know anyone from Alstom, the Secretariat of the Alstom Foundation may be able to help you identify someone willing to Play the promoter role in support of your project. But finding such a Promoter takes time. Accordingly, the deadline for receipt by the Secretariat of requests to find an Alstom Promoter is fixed at 1 May 2019. No such requests will be considered after this date.

Furthermore the Secretariat does not guarantee to find a Promoter for each submission. Promoters are volunteers who will only step forward if a project concept interests them.
