What happens here changes the world. And what SHIFTs here changes the culture.

SHIFT welcomes new and innovative ideas from all around the UT community that creatively address issues related to substance misuse. Monetary awards are available for UT students, faculty, and staff whose ideas aim to help SHIFT the culture on college campuses as it relates to substance misuse. Proposals should be innovative, measurable, and evidence-based.

All proposals reviewed quarterly: April 17, July 13, Nov 16. If received after these dates, the proposal may not be considered until next quarterly review.
