Staff Career Development Grants
2013 Staff Career Development Grant Recepients
Human Resources and USAC invite staff to apply for Staff Career Development Grants of up to $500, awarded annually to offset costs associated with staff career goals and professional development. The grant can be used toward expenses that occur during calendar year 2013. Applications available at hr.osu.edu/special/careerdevgrt.pdf. Staff Career Development Grants are funded through contributions to the Campus Campaign and administered by Human Resources, in cooperation with the USAC. Contact Michele Bondurant, firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Grants are awarded for education and training costs related to the applicant's job and/or career goals. Registration fees, fees for conferences and seminars, tuition for re-training, books, transportation costs, childcare expenses, and job search/outplacement expenses are examples of some of the appropriate uses of the grant. It is a reimbursement grant therefore no funds can be given in advance of approved activities.
- An applicant must meet one of the following conditions:
Must be employed as a regular full- or part-time Classified Civil Service or Administrative and Professional staff member with at least two continuous years of service with Ohio State. (Grants for part-time employees will be pro-rated on the basis of their full-time equivalence.)
- Former Ohio State University staff member with at least two continuous years of university service and currently unemployed due to the elimination of job position.
Faculty, student employees, and staff on temporary appointments are not eligible for this grant.
This is a competitive process and many applications are received, then reviewed by a selection committee. Grants are awarded based on available funds and the following:
- Complete applications, which include required expense information.
- Demonstrated benefits to the individual, department/college and/or the University.
The grant funds must be used for activities that occur during calendar year 2013. Grants of up to $500 will be awarded at the discretion of the Staff Career Development Grants selection committee. Applicants who have not previously received a grant are given priority consideration. Retroactive funding is not provided.
