Staff Senate awards development grants
Successful fundraising has enabled Staff Senate to fund professional development opportunities to benefited staff members through the Seeds for Staff Success grant program, which was developed by Staff Senate to provide staff members with a source of funding to continue their education, attend conferences and workshops, or participate in other staff development opportunities in which they have an interest. The maximum for any individual grant is $500.
The initial seed money for this program was raised through a raffle held by Staff Senate last spring. The first set of grants was awarded after the Sept. 15 deadline, and five staff members were awarded a total of $1,291.90. Application deadlines occur quarterly on Sept. 15, Dec. 15, March 15, and June 15. All money raised at the Denim and Diamonds Annual Faculty and Staff Celebration on Friday, Feb. 22, 2013 at the Gorecki Alumni Center will be matched by President Kelley to support the mission of this program.
The Seeds for Staff Success application and more detailed information about the program can be found on the Staff Senate web site – UND.edu/staff-senate/committees.cfm. Please take the time to share this information with your staff members and encourage them to apply. If you have any questions, please contact Sharley Kurtz or Shannon Medina.
