Late applications will NOT be accepted

University employees who are member of CUPE 1615 are eligible to apply for funding to support their professional development. The CUPE Professional Development Fund has been in place since April 1, 2009 and has an annual budget of $50,000.

Applications are now being accepted and must be received on or before October 17, 2014. Committee decisions will be communicated to applicants within 4-6 weeks of intake deadline.

Application Submission Information

The application form must include a breakdown of all costs associated with the professional development activity. These costs can include, but are not limited to, air transportation, ground transportation, meals, registration fees, and accommodations. Please refer to the Travel – General Policy for information.

Membership fees and exam fees are not funded under this program.
