The 2018 funding cycle is open for Technology Fee grants. “Tech Fee” funding is for projects that can enhance the technology in UF’s instructional environment. Complete program and funding information is available on the Technology Fee website.
Students, staff, and faculty with ideas that fit the submission guidelines are encouraged to participate in the process. Students in particular should consider submitting concept papers and partner with a college or unit (including a Core IT unit) from the planning phase through implementation. A concept paper must be discussed with and signed off by a Core IT unit director–a list of directors and their area of responsibility is provided on the Submitting a Concept Paper page.
The deadline for the initial discussion and signature is February 6, 2018.
All concept papers must be submitted by February 9, 2018. Finalists will be invited to submit full proposals in March. After a review of the proposals, committee recommendations are forwarded to Vice President and CIO Elias Eldayrie for his consideration. Funding awards are announced at the end of spring term. Program guidelines, templates, and previously funded projects are on the Tech Fee website. Please contact Anne Allen, support administrator for the Technology Fee Advisory Committee, with any questions about the submission process.
