The Tuition Enhancements Committee (TEC) receives and reviews funding applications for the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) and Student-Centered Tuition Enhancements (SCTE) monies. TEC hears presentations from applicants and makes recommendations to the Student Senate regarding funding levels. Questions or concerns about EOF or SCTE funding should be directed to the Committee Chair.
EOF and SCTE applications can be found on the Funding Opportunities page on OrgCentral.
TEC Chair: Kate Thomas, email@example.com
TEC will review EOF applications and make a funding recommendation in the fall semester. The Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) establishes formal guidelines for the use of EOF monies. According to KBOR guidelines, money can only be allocated out of the EOF for academic scholarships, need-based grants (particularly for students that have been historically under-represented in higher education), salaries or grants for students participating in public and community service programs, and salaries for students employed in campus student services programs. Preference is given to applications that will fund programs that affect large numbers of students, programs that have limited or no other sources of funding, or programs that significantly enhance the student experience.

TEC will review SCTE applications and make a funding recommendation in the spring semester. SCTE is a program unique to K-State that provides funding for seed money for the creation and implementation of new projects and initiatives. SCTE proposals can receive funding for up to four years. Preference will be given to proposals that have definite, predictable outcomes, programs that affect a large number of students, programs that have limited or no other sources of funding, or programs that significantly enhance the student experience.
