Staff Senate Scholarship
The Staff Senate Scholarship was established to foster a spirit of unity, pride and cooperation among staff members by recognizing the leadership role staff plays in the daily work of the university. This scholarship will be used to support university employees and their immediate family members seeking a degree at the university.
The Staff Senate awards two scholarships each fall and spring semester. All permanent SPA and non-teaching EPA employees (working a minimum of ¾ of the time) and their immediate family members are eligible and encouraged to apply. The employee must have been working for the university for a minimum of one year prior to the first day of the semester of the award. The recipient must have been accepted into the university and be pursuing a degree. Continuing students must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 to be eligible for award. The recipient shall be selected based on need and other information provided to committee.
Fall 2013 Recipients
The recipients of the Staff Senate Scholarship for the Fall 2013 award are Lisa Bertini and Kristy Burnette.
Lisa is an office assistant in the Department of Creative Writing for over seven years. She is a part-time graduate student in Conflict Management & Resolution and hopes to graduate in May 2014. She acknowledged that the Staff Senate Scholarship would ease some of the burden of choosing graduate school over working another part-time job. She is happy working at UNCW and loves the warmth and support of her colleagues.
Kristy is an administrative associate for Printing Services/Print Shop. She is a part-time graduate student in the Masters in Public Administration and hopes to graduate in May 2014. Once completed, her goal is to take on a management role at UNCW and be able to give back to the university from where she has received so much. She states, “as a single mom and sole provider in my household, this has caused some financial duress and this scholarship will help alleviate some of that stress.”
The Staff Senate wishes Lisa and Kristy congratulations and all the best in their future endeavors!

UNCW Faculty/Staff Textbook Scholarship Program
The Textbook Scholarship Program allows eligible UNCW employees to borrow required
textbook(s) from the UNCW Bookstore for undergraduate or graduate classes taken by tuition
benefit or fee waiver at UNCW. The program allows the use of required textbook(s) for two
courses per academic year, but it is not available for the summer terms. The benefit is for used textbooks – new textbooks are provided only if used textbooks are not available.
