By-Laws) may apply for a scholarship toward training that will equip or enhance their skills directly related to the employee's current position.  These learning and development opportunities should also align with the University of the Pacific's mission and strategic plan, Pacific 2020R

Q: Do graduate school admissions exams (e.g. GRE, GMAT) qualify for scholarship support?
A: Admissions exams do not qualify for scholarship support as the benefit to the university is too remote.

Q: What if my professional development activity is canceled?
A: In the event that the awarded amount is not used, it is the responsibility of the applicant to notify the S.A.C. Treasurer and S.A.C. Scholarship Committee in order to reallocate available funds.

Q: If my application is denied can I apply again?
A: Yes, as long as the application funding request is for a future professional development activity.

Q: I just read about completing my introductory period. Is this before applying or before the event?
A: An applicant must have successfully completed his/her introductory before applying for a S.A.C. Scholarship.
