Limited Funding Available for Professional Development for Bryan School Master’s & Graduate Certificate Program Students
**** Application Deadline: Friday, February 21st, 2014 ****
The Bryan School has a limited amount of funds available for the 2013-2014 academic year to support professional development activities for all Bryan School Master’s and Graduate Certificate Program students. The funds can be used to support attendance at conferences/workshops/seminars in your career field or industry, graduate student specific conferences (including career fairs), or courses/seminars for professional certifications. Your professional development activity must be completed by Friday, May 9th, 2014 to expedite the funding process. For a sample list of professional associations that you might want to consider for upcoming conferences/events/certifications, search CareerBeam – login to your CareerBeam account, go to Research Tools, select Business Information Resources, and search under Associations. To request a CareerBeam account, send an email to BryanCareers@uncg.edu.
If you would like to be considered for funding for professional development activities during Spring 2014, please complete this application and email it to Bret Althiser at firstname.lastname@example.org. The applications are due by Friday, February 21st, 2014. Each student must submit an individual application, and only one application per student is allowed. Please type your responses directly onto the form.
You must be enrolled in your graduate program and be in good standing during the academic year in which the funds are requested and during the time in which the professional development activity takes place. Activities must take place within the United States (local, regional, state, or national conferences/events). Also, please note that this is one time funding for a specific professional certification, conference, or event. This is not for monthly attendance at local professional association meetings.
Funding is limited and unlikely to fund all applicants. If you are selected, the Bryan School may not be able to completely fund your requested activity. If you are selected for funding, we will contact you. Please note that students selected will need to pay up front for their requested activities and will be reimbursed up to a certain amount by the Bryan School.

Eligible Students: Baccalaureate and Master’s Level Candidates for May 2014 or August 2014. (Not doctoral.)
Recognition Event: Bryan School Diploma and Awards Ceremony, Friday, May 9, 2014, 2:00 p.m. (following the UNCG Commencement Ceremony)
Click the following link for the citation templates to nominate a recipient (including self-nominations): Student Awards Templates May 2014. The list of eligible students is below. The deadline to email your nominations to Sam Bardarik is Tuesday, April 1, 2014.
Description of Awards
- Bryan Achievement and Leadership Awards (departments/programs will select and submit)
- Undergrads must have at least a 3.0. Grad students must have a 3.5.
- Must have impressive academic achievement. Most recipients in the past have had GPAs far above the minimums.
- Must have significant service activities, some of which are at the “leadership” level.
- Service and leadership can be in the Bryan School, the University and/or the community.
- Dean’s Service Awards (departments/programs will select and submit)
- Undergrads must have a 2.5. Grad students must have a 3.0.
- Recognizes service to the Bryan School and/or any of its departments/programs/offices. Leadership may be a part of it, but clearly at a different level than the A&L Award, or the GPA is lower as to not qualify for the academic requirements.
- Outstanding Undergraduate/Graduate Student Awards (departments/programs will select and submit)
- No GPA requirement, though the typical recipient has a high GPA.
- Recognizes students who have enriched the Bryan School’s learning environment as an ambassador through their professional and service activities, and/or their commitment to and support of other students or their impact on a community or society.
- This is the award for the student who routinely went the extra mile, but not in the traditional areas of “service” and “leadership” and academic achievement as indicated in the other awards, or who has overcome difficult circumstances and has excelled in a manner that is deserving of recognition.

Middle Border Forward group in Danville, VA is hosting an “elevator” pitch contest. If a student has a good idea, they can pitch for two minutes and win $3,000.
It is set for Friday, February 28, 2014 at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research in Danville, Virginia. IdeaFest includes Startup Readiness Express (a workshop to develop entrepreneurship skills), a business pitch competition, a resource fair, and a networking reception. Pitch participants will compete for prize money in front a panel of judges and audience members.
One goal of IdeaFest is to promote entrepreneurship among residents of the Southside region – but we also hope to showcase our available resources to aspiring entrepreneurs. That is why it is so important to us to have UNCG students at this event. We appreciate your help by sharing the attached flyer as well as our website (www.ideafestdanville.com) with interested students or other individuals.
