2016/12/30 – Staff Career Development Grant applications - Human Resources at Ohio State

Staff Career Development Grant applications

Ohio State has many resources that support staff’s career growth, including the Staff Career Development Grant. Staff can apply for funding by January 31 to pursue professional development opportunities.

The Office of Human Resources, in partnership with USAC, offers the Staff Career Development Grant to award up to $1,000 for individuals and $1,500 for groups towards professional development, education or training costs related to job and/or career goals. Professional development grants are a great way for individuals and groups to identify areas of interest for professional development and have the opportunity to apply for funding.  Applications can be submitted through January 31, 2017.

“Being a recipient of a Staff Career Development Grant provided the opportunity for me to participate in training classes, online, to prepare me for certification in my field, said Sharon Cross, patient experience program director, Wexner Medical Center and Staff Career Development Grant past recipient. “Without the grant I would not have been able to pursue certification and be the first in my department to achieve this level of training. I’m very appreciative and thankful for this unique benefit!”

Additionally, the Staff Manager Development Grant is available year-round for managers to apply as professional development opportunities become available. This grant gives managers the chance to enhance their management and leadership skills through participation in management workshops, programs or conferences held at Ohio State. Applications can be submitted at any time.

Development comes in many ways, including on-the-job experiences, tasks and problem-solving, feedback, coaching, working with mentors, reading, classes and webinars. The Office of Human Resources offers a spectrum of resources, programs and tools to support faculty and staff career growth, and help them be their best selves and do their best work.
