Longhorn Innovation Fund for Technology

The Longhorn Innovation Fund for Technology (LIFT) is a fund of approximately $500,000 that is awarded by the Research & Educational Technology Committee (R&E) to innovative academic technology projects that leverage information technology in order to improve quality of instruction, create a differentiator for attracting higher caliber students to the University, or result in a competitive advantage to the University in attracting sponsored research.

The 2015-2016 Solicitation is expected to be open from April until Mid July. Applications are evaluated in July and notification of awards are announced Late July/Early August. Funds are available in September.
