Emily Krauz Staff Endowment Scholarship

Encouraging & Supporting UA Career Staff Towards Their Career Advancement and Education

Application deadlines are March 1st and November 1st


The Emily Krauz Staff Endowment Scholarship is open to non-probationary, benefits-eligible UA career staff members who are permanent resident aliens or U.S. citizens. The purpose of this fund is to encourage and support UA classified staff members in their career advancement and/or continuing education. This scholarship may be applied towards educational and professional development expenses such as registration costs, books and supplies. Education registration may be at the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University or Pima Community College and may include correspondence courses. All professional development expenses will be considered, but highest priority will be given to those that directly benefit your career here at the University of Arizona.

Awards are presented twice a year and limited to $150 per recipient. There is a limit of 2 awards per employee. The total amount awarded every fall and spring is approximately $1,000 and is based upon the amount of interest earned by the fund. Due to the large number of applicants, not every applicant will receive an award. The number of recipients and the amounts awarded are chosen by an independent selection committee from those applications received prior to the deadline for the current semester (5 p.m. on November 1st for fall and 5 p.m. on March 1st for spring). Expenses incurred after the March 1st or November 1st deadline are eligible for submission in the next cycle.

Recipients and amounts awarded to each are chosen by an independent selection committee from those who have applied during the spring and fall semesters. Recipients are notified via email and are also published on this CSC website.

Scholarship recipients are reimbursed for their expenses AFTER they turn in *original receipts*, up to the amount of the award. For example, if you are awarded $150.00 and you hand in receipts for tuition, books and supplies for $90.00, you will be reimbursed for $90.00.

The Staff Endowment Fund was begun in the late 1980s as part of the Century II Capital Campaign. In 1996 the fund was renamed the “Emily Krauz Staff Endowment Scholarship" in honor of Emily Krauz, a dedicated staff member who worked as an administrative associate at the Faculty Center until she passed on in 1996. The endowment was funded entirely through donations from UA employees, not all of whom were classified staff members. The Classified Staff Council was given the responsibility of overseeing the endowment and awarding the earned interest.
