USTAR Request for Proposals (RFP)

The Utah Science Technology and Research (USTAR) Centers Initiative has released a RFP from the community. Click on the links below for the RFP and additional documents:

USTAR RFP Application:  Spring 2014-15

USTAR Documents:  Spring 2014-15


 "What is the Partnership Participant Form?"
Page 2 of the RFP references that submissions should have “2. Partnership Participants Form” that is not referenced elsewhere in the RFP. This is an error that should have been deleted from the RFP, so our apologies for any confusion on that statement.

"Can we add additional attachments and/or appendices to support our proposal?"
There have been community questions regarding the opportunity for providing additional attachments beyond the required “Attachment A: Budget Form” that is included in the required forms. Please note that we will not be accepting additional attachments or appendices for review by the committee. The page limit stated in the narrative serves the purpose of creating a standard length to allow all proposals to be evaluated on the same volume of information. It also allows our reviewers to look at the applications in the time that we have allotted. Please do not submit additional materials beyond the required “Attachment A: Budget Form” as they will not be considered as part of your review.

"If I am a charter school, where should I send my application?"
If you are a charter school applicant, please send your applications to Marlies Burns:
