Scholarships are available to career staff employees who have completed their probation period and are limited to a maximum of $250 per employee per academic year, between Sept. 1 and August 31. There is a limit of one application per scholarship type, per person, per academic year.

Recipients of the scholarships are selected by the Staff Scholarship Subcommittee on a quarterly basis.

There are two types of scholarships:

Professional Development Scholarships

Degree Attainment Scholarships

These scholarships can be used to offset the costs incurred for individuals pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree while working at UCR (i.e. tuition, books, supplies, etc.).
