Staff Awards

The UC Davis Staff Assembly is pleased to sponsor an annual Staff and Dependent Staff Scholarship Program, and an annual Citations of Excellence Program.

Staff and Dependent Staff Scholarship Program

The UC Davis/UCDHS Staff Assembly Scholarship Committee offers scholarships to UC Davis career staff and their dependents on both the Davis and Sacramento campuses. We are proud to administer the Kathleen Moore Endowment Scholarship; Latino Staff and Faculty Association Scholarship; Margene E. Orzalli Endowment Scholarship; UC Davis Retirees' Association Career Enhancement Award; Staff Assembly Scholarships; and the Larry N. Vanderhoef Staff Scholarship.

Through this program, career staff receive funding to continue their education in Associate, Bachelor, or graduate degree programs at community colleges, state colleges, universities (public or private), and professional schools as well as to pursue professional certificates for personal/professional development.

Dependents of career staff at UC Davis, field stations, and labs who are attending or will attend UC Davis as an undergraduate during the academic year (that they apply) are eligible for the Staff Dependent Scholarship award.

The Staff Scholarship Program is funded by generous endowments, sales of Staff Pins and TGFS sponsorships. Annual award amounts vary depending on the number of qualified applicants and the amount of available funds.

Kathleen Moore Endowment Scholarship

The Kathleen Moore Endowment Scholarship was created to provide career advancement and educational enrichment opportunities for career staff working under the Vice Chancellor for Finance, Operations and Administration, and earning $51,000 or less annually.

Career staff may apply for this scholarship to continue their education in Associate, Bachelor, or graduate degree programs at community colleges, state colleges, universities (public or private) and professional schools, as well as to attend a conference or pursue professional certificates for personal/professional development.

The number of awards to be presented this year is based upon funds available, the number of eligible applicants and is at the discretion of the Staff Assembly Scholarship Committee.
