prioritized, and managed.

Submission of Proposals

Projects proposed will be evaluated within the TF criteria and considered based on need. Proposals can be submitted from: the Internal and
External University community including departments, college or schools, students, and groups. Submission of the projects is outlined below:

1) Complete and submit the Student Technology Fee Proposal Form.
2) Be sure to attach all relevant support documentation
3) Once you click submit your proposal will be automatically submitted to stf@famu.edu

Criteria for Proposals

Proposals submitted for use the Technology Fee funds shall be prioritized and accepted based on the following criteria:  
  • Technological/Infrastructure (circle one) needs and services directly related to enhancing instruction and learning for students.
  • Provide a stable technologically current network and computing environment for Students and Faculty.
  • Instructional Technology, Media Center or Library for program application or services.
  • College or School (academic departments or unit), for enhancement of the education of students.
