Professional Development Grant Program

At the heart of Staff Council is a desire to help staff who want to help themselves. Guided by this desire, our 2014-15 Professional Development Committee formed a plan to help fund staff enrollment in professional development courses. At this time, grants may be awarded by the Professional Development Committee for up to $2,000. Anything above that amount will require approval from the Executive Committee of Staff Council.
