Student Technology Fellows

The Student Technology Fellows (STF) program offers a select number of students each year the opportunity to support units or individual faculty/staff expand the capacity for instructional technology in the educational experience. Those selected into this program are provided a unique opportunity to develop professional-level skills in a wide variety of information technology areas, through both online and hands-on training methods, as well as by working “in the field” for the unit to which they are assigned. The outcome from this ongoing investment is an increase in the technology skills of the student fellows and an increase in the number of graduates who have experienced technological applications in their studies, making them better equipped to use technologies in their chosen career.  If you meet the following requirements, please consider applying.
