Scholarships are available to career (50% or greater full-time employment), non-represented, non-union, PPSM policy-covered staff who have completed probation. NOTE: this program is for staff that are not represented by a bargaining unit (union) -- at the administrative level, this is Analyst 1 and above. To check your eligibility by Title or Title Code, please visit the HR site here.
The title immediately above, for an (Administrative) Assistant 3 employee, belongs to the Clerical bargaining unit "CX" and therefore the employee is not eligible.
The title immediately above, for an Analyst 1 employee, does not belong to a bargaining unit, reflected by the "99-" code, and therefore the employee is a member of Staff Assembly and is eligible to apply for the scholarship program.
Preference is given to activities promoting the mission of UCSF as well as contributing to safe and healthy lifestyles and communities
Scholarships can be awarded in multiple years to the same applicant if the applicant meets Staff Assembly’s requirements for reporting on the use of previously granted awards
