Staff Council/WGRC Scholarships

Staff Council is proud to present a number of scholarships for UH staff members.

The Women and Gender Resource Center provides five $1000.00 scholarships and the Staff Council provides ten $1000.00 scholarships to employees who plan to attend degree or job related academic credit classes during the fall, spring or summer semesters at the University of Houston. Completing the application on the Staff Council/WGRC Scholarships page will apply for both scholarships (applications are accepted late in the Spring semester, typically from late April through early June).

The Rodger Peters Staff Scholarship provides one $2,500 scholarship award which will be awarded in two semesters at $1,250 per semester at the University of Houston.  See the Rodger Peters Staff Scholarship page for more details or to apply.

The B. Renae Milton Students of Staff Scholarship will provide a $500 scholarship to a University of Houston student who is a dependent of a University of Houston staff member.  See the B. Renae Milton Students of Staff Scholarship page for more details or to apply.

The Professional Development Reimbursement, also inspired by Rodger Peters' passion for supporting staff development opportunities, is a new Staff Council initiative that will help individual staff members participate in professional development opportunities outside UH.

These scholarships are made possible by the continuous support from the President's Office and fellow staff members.  You can pledge to the scholarship funds directly online by visiting UH Gives Back or thru payroll deduction by submitting the attached Faculty/Staff Donation form.
