Apply now: Application deadline is Feb. 15 for UTSA Staff Council scholarships
(Jan. 31, 2011) The deadline is Tuesday, Feb. 15 for UTSA staff to apply for the 2011 Staff Council scholarships. UTSA will award the $500 scholarship to a maximum of two undergraduates and two graduate students who are full-time, benefits-eligible staff members according to university policy, and either classified or administrative and professional staff members at UTSA enrolled in at least three UTSA credit hours as of the fall 2011 semester.
Students employed in positions that require student status as a condition for employment are excluded from eligibility.
The UTSA Staff Council offers its annual scholarship as a service to help full-time UTSA staff reduce their educational expenses. The scholarship is funded by UTSA Staff Council bottled water sales during commencement ceremonies, Staff Council fundraisers and donations made to Staff Council members in person or on the UTSA Staff Council website.
"In conjunction with UTSA's Employee Education Benefit, the Staff Council scholarship can aid UTSA staff by offsetting out-of-pocket expenses," said Chris Goldsberry, UTSA financial aid outreach specialist and Staff Council vice chair. "UTSA is incredibly supportive of staff members who want to continue their education. We worked hard to double the amount of the scholarship from $250 to $500 this year, and we highly encourage eligible staff to apply."
The UTSA Staff Council is an advisory body through which UTSA staff members convey information and make recommendations to President Romo regarding staff-related interests and concerns. It is charged by the UTSA president and the UT System Board of Regents with the goal of continually improving university operations and the wellbeing of UTSA staff members.
UTSA staff can apply for the Staff Council scholarship by completing the General Scholarship Application online.
