Student Technology Fee

Each year, the Student Technology Fee funds millions of dollars of instructional technology at Florida State University.

The Student Technology Fee—assessed from tuition each semester—is strategically distributed among university colleges, central IT organizations and instructional technology proposals. These proposals give departments an opportunity to secure funding for innovative and critical technology projects that may not be possible otherwise. To date, the STF has distributed $59.5 million, including $41.0 million to university colleges and central IT organizations and $18.5 million to fully or partially fund 613 instructional technology proposals.

Call for 2023-2024 Project Submissions

The Student Technology Fee Advisory Committee will soon be inviting proposals for projects that will enhance instructional technology during the 2023-2024 awards cycle. Proposals may be submitted by academic and non-academic departments, and proposals that were submitted but not funded during previous award cycles may be resubmitted.

Submission Deadline

Check back in Summer 2023 for an updated schedule.
