We are happy to announce that Human Resources was allocated $15,000 for the CSI Professional Development Fund, which is available to eligible full-time tax-levy staff in HEO, Non-Instructional, Classified Managerial, and Classified titles. This funding will be available until completely dispersed or until Sunday, June 30, 2024, whichever comes first.   

Please note, eligible employees may receive a maximum of $750 per person from the fund to cover the cost of conference registration (virtual or in-person), transportation and, if applicable, up to $25 per day for meals (out-of-town travel only). 

When applying for funds, please keep in mind the following:

  • ​The fund does not cover license fees.
  • The application must be received by Human Resources at least ten business days prior to the event with all necessary signatures and documentation in order to be reviewed and considered.
  • There is a limit of $750 per person:
    • an employee will be responsible for covering costs over $750 
    • in most cases (other than CUNY-sponsored programs) an employee will pay the cost of the program up front and will submit for reimbursement from the fund up to $750
  • Submissions for reimbursement of programs that already occurred will not be considered or reimbursed retroactively; prior approval from the committee to cover the cost of the program through the fund is required.
  • Applications must be for expenses that will come due prior to Monday, July 1, 2024.
  • If applying to take a training course(s) offered by DCAS​, an employee is also responsible for completing the DCAS application form and obtaining all necessary signatures.
