The purpose of the Staff Enhancement Grant (SEG) is to help cover the costs associated with the pursuit of personal development for staff for initiatives not directly related to job duties. The University of Waterloo Staff Association (UWSA) reviews applications and determines recipients for a Staff Enhancement Grant. Applications will be judged on the basis of the overall merit of the objectives, activities, and benefits to the individual, and the community. All University of Waterloo Staff Association members are eligible to apply for a Staff Enhancement Grant.
Please note: the grant will not supplement or replace routine departmental training, unit development costs and responsibilities, or personal vacation.
The University of Waterloo Staff Association Staff Enhancement Grant committee will review applications within three weeks after the deadline date and inform applicants of its decision. The amount of the grant will be up to $500.00. Awarded funds are to be used within six months of committee decision.
To receive Staff Enhancement Grant funds, the recipient is required to submit original receipts and a short, written report to the University of Waterloo Staff Association office within one month of completing the activity.
Examples of expenses approved for past Staff Enhancement Grants include: textbooks, course supplies, training/workshop fees, software or services travel expenses allowable under the University of Waterloo Travel Policy #31 (hotel accommodation, meals/beverages, transportation, etc.). Please refer to the list of prior awards granted.
