Nominations are now being accepted for the 2017 Staff Assembly Recognition Awards and Staff Scholarships, which recognize outstanding achievements by UCLA employees.

UCLA Staff Assembly is accepting nominations and applications for the following awards:

Chancellor’s Excellence in Service Award
One award will be presented to a staff member whose career has exemplified an extraordinary commitment to UCLA’s mission through contributions that have had a meaningful impact on the University, and who has championed the value of inclusiveness, innovation, diversity and teamwork. The individual selected for this prestigious honor will receive a $4,000 award.

Faculty/Staff Partnership Award
In recognition of the value of collaboration and collegiality, staff members are encouraged to nominate faculty members who exemplify these values and who actively develop and encourage faculty/staff partnerships.

Staff Scholarships
Staff members may apply for scholarships in support of their career enhancement and professional growth. Each award covers the cost of education and training up to $500. UCLA Staff Assembly will fund up to 15 scholarships this year, and the UCLA Retirees’ Association is the proud sponsor of four of these scholarships. In addition, UCLA’s Healthy Campus Initiative is pleased to offer two scholarships for education and training that support improving the health and wellness of the UCLA community.
