Call for proposals: 2006-07 Differential Tuition Awards
Differential tuition is a student-approved fee that provides UW-Eau Claire with approximately $1,200,000 in annual funding to support enhanced student experiences at the baccalaureate level. Each year the provost and his staff meet with members of the Student Senate Academic Affairs Commission to review actual expenditures for the current fiscal year and discuss planned funding levels by category for the next fiscal year. Current categories receiving differential tuition support, and the Student Senate approved ranges for 2006-07 are as follows:

        Faculty/Student Collaborative Research, 30-35%
        First Year Experience, 25-30%
        Internships/Practical Experiences, 15-20%
        Capstone Experiences, 10-15%
        Service-Learning, 15-20%
        Innovative Projects, 3-5%

Eligibility:
All departments/units within Academic Affairs are eligible to apply for differential tuition funding. Differential tuition funds are awarded annually on a competitive proposal basis. Funding in a previous fiscal year does not establish an entitlement to funding for the same or similar project in a subsequent year. Differential tuition awards not expended at the end of the fiscal year revert to the general tuition pool for reallocation in the subsequent fiscal year. Awards are not eligible for carryover. Department chairs and directors must submit proposals by Oct. 7.

Complete proposal instructions and application forms are available online. Go to top of page
