University Staff Professional Development Grant

To participate, you must be currently employed at UW Oshkosh, UW Oshkosh Fond du Lac and UW Oshkosh Fox Valley as a permanent University Staff member, and have completed at least one continuous year of employment on their campus.

Grants are intended solely for non-credit conferences, seminars and workshops (hereinafter referred to as an event). Dependent on fund availability, grants will be awarded up to $350.

The budget submitted must include the grant amount requested, the event fee and all estimated travel expenses for the event (e.g., transportation costs, mileage, meals, lodging, etc.).

Grants are available for Spring 2024 (for events held January 1, 2024 through June 30, 2024). The application deadline for spring is 4:30 p.m., Friday, April 19, 2024, for events scheduled any time between January 1, 2024 through June 30, 2024.

Within one month of the scheduled event date (or upon notification of receiving the award), grant recipients must submit a written report about the event’s content and how it met the employee’s and supervisor’s expectations. University staff members failing to submit a timely report will be ineligible to apply for another grant.
