The fund supports the education and training of staff at ISR by providing financial awards to ISR employees who are pursuing an undergraduate degree or master’s degree from an accredited institution. Applications for other educational/certificate programs or examinations will be considered if funds are available.

Selected applicants will receive up to $600 to cover educational expenses such as course books, travel, tuition, and other out-of-pocket expenses.


Regular staff who are not on probation are eligible to apply. Temporary and contingent employees are not eligible. Priority will be given to employees seeking their first undergraduate degree (associate’s or bachelor’s degree) and applying for their first award​.


If you have questions about the award or the application process, please email Tara Engholm at [email protected].
