The Student Technology Fee Innovation Grants – Spring 2017 closed on  February 21, 2017.  The next call will be issued in October of 2017.


Special Funding Process


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:
