Apply for Robert F. Ray Staff Scholarship by April 1

University of Iowa staff members who wish to begin or continue their undergraduate education can apply for funding support from the Robert F. Ray Staff Scholarship, offered through the Division of Continuing Education.

The scholarship fund was established in honor of the late Robert F. Ray, former dean of continuing education. Ray was a recognized leader in distance education, regional accreditation, forensics, and intercollegiate athletics.

The Robert F. Ray Staff Scholarship for university employees was established to honor the contributions and vision of this inspirational leader. The recipient will be awarded $1,500 to cover the cost of valid educational expenses at the UI over the course of one year.

Applicants must be employed by the university at least half-time, for not less than one year from the date of application, in a position classified as office and clerical, service, technical, or professional and scientific, and must remain employed by the university during the period of the award. While this award is not need-based, applicants must not be receiving tuition reimbursement or other grants (with the exception of staff tuition grants) in order to be considered.

The deadline for application is April 1. For an application or more information, visit here.
