MARC Sample Formats for Competing New (Type 1) and Competing Renewal (Type 2) Applications

All applications must include FORMS-D Data Tables 2 and 4  for undergraduates (new applications) or 2, 4, and 8D Part I (renewals). FORMS-D Data Tables should be uploaded to the Data Table section of the application form. Samples are found at the Forms-D Data Tables site; however the linked example of Table 8D Part I is more useful for undergraduate programs.

Suggested tables A, B, C, D and E may be used to submit a MARC U-STAR competing application. While these tables are merely suggested, the information contained on them must be presented in the application in some format. Do not upload the suggested Tables A-E to the Data Table section or the Appendix. The data for Tables A, B and C should be included within the Program Plan and the data for Tables D and E should be included in the Progress Report. The following samples are available in Microsoft Word, PDF and HTML format.
