Student Technology Fee Call for Proposals Reminder
A pool of funds from the Student Technology Fee is available to stimulate the development of innovative student-focused technology projects on the Oxford campus. A total of $525,000 is available and any student, faculty or staff member may apply for funding. The deadline for proposals is Friday, February 8, 2013. Funds awarded will be for projects in the 2013-2014 school year.
The funds will be awarded through a competitive process that is governed by a review team comprised of students, faculty and staff members from across the campus. All proposals must be in compliance with the guidelines for expenditures, as developed by the University Senate IT Policy Committee and approved by the IT Strategic Advisory Council.
Over the past four years the Student Tech Fee Competitive Process has awarded over $2 million to 168 projects designed to use technology to enhance the Miami Experience. Highlights of the projects currently underway include providing portable interactive Whiteboards in Hughes Hall, field electronics for the marching band, and ruggedized digital cameras for student use from the BEST ibrary. Projects have been submitted from all academic divisions and a broad variety of disciplines.
