Career Development Scholarships 2018

The Career Development Scholarship program seeks to engage staff in self-identified learning and development activities that align with Performance and Career Development (PACD) plans and the strategic direction of their College/Division, and that are not normally supported via other means.  Applications which address annual themes are strongly encouraged and will be looked upon favourably by the selection committee. This year the annual themes are:

Building internal leadership capabilities to enhance institutional excellence

Activities that foster internal (or Cross) College or Division collaborations to enhance team and/or individual leadership capabilities in supporting a collegial culture.

Alignment with UTAS Statement of Values

Activities that build an inclusive, diverse and equitable workplace to embed the UTAS values in on-going activities.

All eligible staff are encouraged to apply, and applicants are strongly encouraged to be innovative in proposing how their needs may be met. Further information is provided in the below guidelines.

Applications must be submitted by Friday 13 April 2018.
