Special Funding Request
In accordance with the Student Technology Fee Advisory Committee procedures, the committee may consider special requests for funding and recommend such requests to the CIO. Requests should follow the Board of Regents Technology Fee Guidelines.
Priority will be given to requests that:
•Directly benefit students
•Assist students in meeting their educational objectives
•Benefit broad groups of students or the entire student population instead of specific students or groups of students
•Combine funding with funding from other affected parties
Special Requests for Funding will NOT be awarded for:
•Administrative hardware or software
•Specialized research equipment
•Items that do not have a direct impact on students’ instructional objectives
If a request needs to be made for specific groups of people, there is an Innovative Technology Fee Grant Proposal procedure that is outside the scope of these Special Request Procedures. The Innovative Technology Fee Grant Proposal is announced via a Call for Proposals every fall and spring.
The following steps should be taken as you prepare your request for consideration by the Student Technology Fee Advisory Committee:
•Review the Board of Regents Technology Fee Guidelines to ensure your request is appropriate.
•Complete the Special Request form.
•Obtain the approval of your immediate supervisor.
•Contact the Technology Support Services Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) to develop an itemized budget for the request.
•Submit the Special Request form (Word doc) to the chair of the Student Technology Fee Advisory Committee (email@example.com) and the CIO (firstname.lastname@example.org) for consideration.
