1999-2000 Call for Individual Proposals for Funds
I am pleased to announce the call for individual proposals for Staff
Equal Opportunity Enrichment Program funds for the 1999-2000 fiscal
year. This program provides individual awards, up to $500, for training
opportunities for career employees seeking a promotion or career change
who meet performance evaluation requirements, have completed their
probationary period, and submit a complete application. All applicants
will be considered without regard to gender or ethnicity.
One of UCSD's objectives is to increase diversity in career positions.
The implementation of the Staff Equal Opportunity Enrichment Program is
one method by which this objective may be achieved. This year, the Staff

Please note: The Staff Equal Opportunity Enrichment Program Committee
asks applicants to seek funding from their departments for the proposed
training activity prior to submitting a proposal.
Career employees, who aspire to work in any of the job titles listed
above and who meet the requirements, are encouraged to apply. Please
thoroughly review the attached requirements and selection criteria. If
eligible, submit 12 copies of the completed proposal to Human Resources-

Enrichment Program will be in compliance with equal opportunity/
