Women's Forum to Establish Staff Awards
For many years the Women's Forum has supported
women students through scholarships and faculty
pursuing research on women's issues through
research awards. The forum recently recognized
the need to support women in the USM who do not
fall into student or faculty status by
establishing a fund for
professional development awards.
purpose of this fund is to encourage and enable
staff to obtain training to enhance their
current job skills or enable them to seek new
career opportunities. This fund is not meant to
be a scholarship fund but is reserved for
individual developmental activities.
Staff Awards Committee is currently developing
guidelines and an application form for this new
award. If all goes well, the committee will
begin accepting award applications in the spring
of 2004. Check upcoming newsletters and the web
site for updates.
