Staff Scholarships & Waivers
Effective April, 1, 2010, the eligibility requirement for the President’s Staff Scholarship Program, the Staff Council Staff Textbook Scholarship, and the Waiver of Required Fees for employees taking classes at UTEP was reduced from twelve (12) months to only six (6) months.
The President’s Staff Scholarship Program pays $300 tuition per semester for full-time staff who have not already earned a bachelor’s degree. For more information on the President’s Staff Scholarship, contact the Office of Scholarships at ext.5478. These applications are emailed to eligible staff in May.
The Staff Council Textbook Scholarship pays $200 per semester toward textbook expenses. For more information on the Staff Textbook Scholarship, contact a Staff Council member or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The applications are available in June.
The Waiver of Required Fees program also applies to full-time UTEP employees who are working toward an undergraduate degree which reduces the cost of each class by about 75 percent. If you have any questions, please call the Department of Human Resource Services at 747-5202.
