Employee Development Funds

The development of Eastern Iowa Community Colleges' faculty and staff is important to the teaching and learning mission of the college. The Chancellor has established two new funds to support ongoing education and training for employees: the Employee Educational Advancement Fund and the Employee Professional Development Fund.

Employee Educational Advancement Fund

This fund will support tuition and course fees for bachelor and graduate-level education or non-degree certifications. Deadlines are May 10 for summer and fall enrollment and October 1 for spring enrollment.

Employee Professional Development Fund

This fund will support registration and travel expenses to attend conferences, workshops and webinars; to participate in short-term training; or to bring in external speakers or trainers for a specific purpose. Preference will be given to applications received by May 10 for summer, by July 1 for fall, and by November 1 for spring.
