Technology Fee

Technology Fee Innovation Grants

New Criteria for Selection

The Technology Fee funds projects proposed by students, staff, and faculty through a competitive process each year. Any member in the UF community who has an idea for a proposal is encouraged to research its viability with the IT units who would support the project, then submit a concept paper.

The grant criteria have changed this year:

  • the focus is on educational innovation utilizing technology
  • this includes finding ways to make an existing technology available to a larger number of individuals or
  • applying technology in a new way to further teaching and learning.

Students, staff and faculty, are encouraged to take their ideas and partner with a college or an administrative unit to submit a concept paper.  A partnership is necessary for continuity over the life of the project and for sustainability.

In this two-part process, the Advisory Committee reviews Concept Papers, and selected proposals are invited to submit a full Project Proposal. The committee acts in an advisory capacity to the CIO, who makes the final decision on projects to be funded and implemented.

Please review the materials on this website including Submitting a Concept Paper and the Scoring Criteria.

A Technology Fee was implemented for all UF students beginning Fall 2009 and is used to enhance instructional technology services and infrastructure for students and faculty at the University of Florida.
