Professional Development Funds:

Professional Development Funds are available through the MTC to nourish, extend knowledge and create expertise for employees at the UH Bauer College of Business. Some examples of acceptable opportunities for use of these funds are to attend conferences, pay for memberships or to attend workshops.

Staff members can be awarded up to $1,000 per person from the MTC. However, you or your department can cover additional costs if the total cost of development opportunity exceeds $1,000. The Fund is available for benefits eligible staff who have been with Bauer for at least one year. The Professional Development Request Form is located here:
