Utah Nanofab: USTAR-Funded Student-Originated Project Application


Utah Nanofab: USTAR-Funded Student-Originated Project Application v2

In an effort to promote student entrepreneurship, USTAR has provided funds for students to access resources of the Utah Nanofab, in support of their own project ideas. Phase-I efforts are subsidized entirely by USTAR, and Phase-II activity matches USTAR funds to resources the students muster. Typical award sizes are $500-3,000 for Phase-I and $1,000-5,000 for phase-II. Proposal budgets can include tool time, tech time, and limited supplies. Access includes the USTAR cleanroom, Surface Analysis and nano-scale Imaging Lab, microfluidics prototyping, electrical characterization labs.

Students are encouraged to discuss their ideas with Nanofab staff in advance of submitting a proposal. Proposal review may take up to 4 weeks.
