The 2014 funding cycle has opened for Technology Fee awards. “Tech Fee” funding is for projects that can enhance the technology used in UF’s instructional environment.
Anyone in the UF community with an idea that fits the submission guidelines is encouraged to participate in the process. Utilizing Tech Fee dollars is an excellent way to enhance the teaching and learning environment for students and faculty.
A proposed idea, in the form of 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 available under Requirements on the Submitting a Concept Paper page. The deadline for the initial discussion and signature is December 13, 2013.
All concept papers must be submitted by January 15, 2014. Finalists will be invited to submit full proposals in April. After a review of the proposals, committee recommendations will be forwarded to Vice President and CIO Elias Eldayrie for his consideration. Funding awards will be announced before the end of the Spring 2014 term.
Program information, guidelines, templates, and previously funded projects are on the Tech Fee website. Please contact Anne Allen, technical support administrator for the Technology Fee Advisory Committee, with any questions about the submission process.
