Tech Fee Funding Options


Each year a percentage of the total Tech Fee revenues are allocated to Academic Departments as well as targeted administration funds to benefit students and support academic instruction. These funding sources are then administered by localized Tech Fee Committees with 50% or more participation by GSU students which then review and vote on proposals presented for possible funding against these allocations.

When creating a proposal for Tech Fee funding you will be asked to identify the fund to which you are applying. See below for a description of the options available to you as a prospective awardee. Be sure to review the Tech Fee Guidelines for appropriate use which apply to all funding sources listed.
