Staff Emergency Loan Fund
The Staff Emergency Loan Fund (SELF) provides interest free loans on an emergency basis to University of Vermont permanent full time or part time staff members who have successfully completed their probationary period. All personal information regarding staff members found on loan applications remain confidential. The security of information is maintained at all times by the Staff Council Office.
Community Service Award
The Staff Council Community Engagement Committee will recognize demonstrated volunteerism by UVM Staff with a $25 award (per staff member) made payable to the 501c3 group or organization connected to the staff member’s volunteer effort. UVM staff members are limited to one application per calendar year.
Applications are to be submitted to the Staff Council Office. The Staff Council Social Committee will review and process award applications at their monthly meeting, following receipt of the application. Please note: funds will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, until the funds are depleted. Support for this Award Program is dependent upon availability of funds, and is not guaranteed.
