Staff Development Award

The Arts and Sciences Staff Development Award provides support for college staff members who wish to participate in workshops, seminars, conferences and other training opportunities that relate to their current job responsibilities. The award can also be used for reference books, training software and other materials that enhance staff members’ job skills. The fund should not be used for learning or professional development opportunities that do not relate to job requirements.

There are three Staff Development Fund application submission deadlines each year: July-October, November-February, and March-June. The next deadline will be posted as soon as the next application cycle opens.
