The Technology Fee collected from students each year funds IT-based projects proposed by students, faculty, and staff. The submission deadline for 2013 “Tech Fee” concept papers is February 15, 2013. Last year the Tech Fee funded three projects, including which can be viewed on the website.

Anyone in the UF community with an idea that fits the guidelines must meet with the UFIT unit who would support the project before submitting a concept paper. In the two-part review process, concept papers will be reviewed in March by an advisory committee composed of students and faculty. The committee will then invite finalists to submit full proposals in April. After review of the proposals, recommendations will be forwarded to my office.  Funding awards will be announced at the end of April.

The state approved the collection of a technology fee at all of Florida’s public colleges and universities during the 2007 legislative session. The fee was first implemented at UF in fall 2009. Revenue collected from this fee is used solely to enhance instructional technology resources for students and faculty. Any questions about the Tech Fee submission process or awards funding should be sent to Anne Allen (alallen@ufl.edu).
Information about submitting a concept paper, past award winners, and this year’s Technology Fee funding cycle is available on the UFIT Web site.
