Bradley Munn Professional Growth Fund
Would you like to receive up to an extra $100?
Of course you would!
If you have paid for a class, textbooks, workshop, professional conference expenses (including travel expenses), PSP application fee, or a similar type of educational expense, then you should apply for an educational stipend from the UNOPA Fund.
It's like giving yourself a bonus!
The Bradley Munn Professional Growth Fund Committee has the responsibility for the administration of UNOPA Fund # CD2484. It was established to benefit the professional growth of our members and the university as a whole.
This fund is for YOU!
Is there a limit?
There is a limit to the number of stipends we can make this year (12 general reimbursements up to $100, plus 7-10 reimbursements for PSP application fees). The limit hasn't been reached for several years, so don't hesitate to apply.
Who is eligible, and when?
You can't receive a stipend for two years in a row, but other than that, any part-time or full-time employee who is a UNOPA member is welcome to apply.
Sounds great! How do I get this?
Just fill out the simple reimbursement form and attach receipts for up to $100 in expenses. In addition to receipts, attach proof of completion:
- If applying for reimbursement of expenses for a class, seminar, or conference, attach proof that you passed the class (for example, a copy of your grade report) or proof that you attended the conference/seminar (for example,a copy of your attendance certificate).
- If applying for reimbursement of a PSP application fee, attach a copy of your Professional Activity Record with signatures, or some other proof that you applied (for example, a copy of your PSP certificate).

When are they reviewed?
Applications are accepted any time; however, all reimbursements must be submitted no later than 60 days after the final day on which the expenses incurred. The first Review Board will look at all applications received by October 15 for reimbursement in November or December. What a great time to give yourself a bonus!
Applications received after October 15 will be reviewed February 15 and May 15. So remember the UNOPA Fund when you have educational expenses, and give yourself a bonus for continuing your professional development!
