The committee, which is part of the IT governance structure at The University of Texas at Austin, is responsible for allocating close to $500,000 in LIFT funds towards innovative technology projects that benefit the campus community. The following proposals were selected out of a field of 28 to receive funding:

LIFT is intended primarily as one-time seed money for 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. Preference is given to proposals that address significant campus needs in innovative ways, that have a likelihood of success, and that have a breadth of impact of value to the University.
