Potential Host Sites


We are pleased to release the 2018-2019 Request for Proposal (RFP) for the CSU STEM VISTA program. A word version of the VISTA Assignment Description (VAD) template is available here.

VISTA members will be awarded to CSU STEM academic departments, colleges, and institutes, including faculty development centers. Non-academic departments or programs, such as student affairs programs are also eligible to apply; however, STEM students must be the primary focus of the VISTA project.

For this RFP, STEM is defined as Life and Physical Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Information Technology, excluding Social and Health Sciences.

A campus may host multiple VISTA members in various departments, colleges, institutes, or programs but they must apply separately. Applicants interested in applying for multiple VISTA positions should contact the VISTA program manager to discuss proposal guidelines.

Please review the RFP for additional program details and information on how to submit a proposal.
