The University Staff Senate awards two scholarships annually. The University Staff Senate Scholarship is awarded in the fall semester and summer semester. The Faculty for Collective Bargaining Scholarship is awarded each spring semester. Applications are generally accepted the semester before the scholarship is awarded. 

 

University Staff Senate Scholarship

The University Staff Senate adopted a proposal to establish a Staff Senate Scholarship fund in Spring 1982, to benefit family members of SIUe Civil Service and Professional Staff employees. This scholarship is a cash award for attendance during the Fall or Summer term at SIUe for a deserving high school graduate(s) or a continuing undergraduate student(s) at SIUe. The University Staff Senate Scholarship Fund has acquired its money by personal contributions, a phone-a-then, the annual Staff Senate Barbecue, the annual Ice Cream Cabaret and other fund raising activities. Fund raising is the responsibility of the University Staff Senate through its Scholarship Committee. Amounts awarded to eligible Scholarship applicants are determined by a combination of factors including: the amount of dollars donated to the Staff Senate Scholarship Fund, monies from its fundraising events including but not limited to the SS BBQ, and the SS Ice Cream Cabaret; and the number of applicants for each Scholarship. Your support is welcome. Consider donating to the University Staff Senate Scholarship.

The management arrangement was established in March 1999 through actions of the SIUe Foundation based upon a request from Dr's. George Henderson and John Farley. The University Staff Senate will award scholarships, establish account structure and serve as the custodian for the accounts.
