Non-exempt staff employees at the University of Tennessee may participate in a special Career Development Fund program supported by annual gifts from employees.

The fund provides the opportunity for employees to participate in job- and career-related development activities. A limited number of funds are set aside each fiscal year to reimburse departments and employees with total or partial support for training expenses. Once fund resources are committed in a fiscal year, the fund will no longer approve new applications until the next fiscal year.

The fund will provide $150 per recipient during each fiscal year.

Employees are encouraged to apply to the fund for assistance when they believe participation in a program or activity will contribute to their personal and professional career growth. The fund’s committee reviews requests and approves funding based on fund guidelines.
