The Educational Assistance Award is intended to assist State Classified employees seeking to advance in their jobs/careers. Each semester (fall and spring), up to five (5) awards may be given in the amount of $500 – taxes will be taken out of this amount. The committee meets monthly and reviews applications during the meeting.

This award may be utilized for any professional development or educational activity, including university courses, workshops, certificates, or trades related courses. Additionally, funds may be used for tuition, books, childcare, gas for traveling to class, etc. If selected for the award, applicants may be asked to submit enrollment verification before funds will be released. If an employee is taking courses at CSU, this award will not affect their employee study privilege credits.

If you require any assistance with the application, please contact CPC Recognition Committee Co-Chair or CPC Chair,
