TLO Undergraduate Application


The University of North Florida’s Board of Trustees has allocated several hundred thousand dollars in recurring funds to support student engagement in transformational learning opportunities (TLOs). Full-time (non-visiting) faculty and staff from colleges, academic departments and programs, and other campus entities, may apply for a portion of these funds to support initiatives that are not funded through the regular budgeting process and that fit the University’s definition of transformational learning opportunities.  


While we welcome applications from all categories, special consideration will be given to undergraduate proposals that align with the following designations that speak to UNF and SUS Board of Governors strategic goals: 

  • Undergraduate Research
  • Community-Based Learning
  • Global Awareness Experiences

Experiences in the above categories may take place internationally or domestically.



This application is for undergraduate students only. A portion of each year's TLO funding is given directly to the Graduate School to facilitate their Graduate Research Grant program. Please contact them directly for more information about how they use their portion of TLO funding.  


Before completing the TLO Application, please review the TLO Application Guide below. The Application Guide includes important information concerning the TLO Program and instructions on completing the TLO application. 


The TLO application is online. Log into MyWings; under the Staff tab click Employee Self-Service; UNF Administrative Applications, Online Forms, then select either the International or Domestic Application.


Please check back soon for the TLO Application Deadline for projects taking place in 2019-2020 (July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020).

TLO Application Workshops

Designing Successful Transformational Learning Opportunities (TLOs)
2018 date and time to be determined

Faculty and staff interested in applying for Transformational Learning Opportunity (TLO) funds are invited to attend the TLO workshop entitled, "Designing Successful Transformational Learning Opportunities (TLOs)." This session will provide an overview of the TLO concept, some examples of past successful TLOs, and guidelines for applying for financial support.

RSVP at or contact Dan Richard with inquiries. 

Manageable and Meaningful Assessment of Transformational Learning Experiences
2018 date and time to be determined


UNF Faculty who apply for TLO funding design a wide variety of truly transformational learning experiences for students. Designing an assessment plan both enhances the TLO application and provides an important way to maximize student benefit from the experience. Yet assessing transformational learning objectives can be difficult because the objectives can be difficult to define, and because TLOs may not include graded assignments in the same way as other classes do. This workshop will help participants define transformational learning objectives and develop manageable assessment strategies for determining the impact of the TLO experience. Faculty and staff interested in applying for Transformational Learning Opportunity (TLO) funds are especially encouraged to attend.

RSVP at or contact Dan Richard with inquiries.
