EVMS is soliciting applications for the Tuition Waiver Program (TWP) designed to help faculty and staff further their professional development and educational endeavors. The program will support the new enrollment of faculty and staff in several of the School of Health Professions educational programs (doctoral, graduate, and graduate certificate programs). The TWP embraces the values expressed in the EVMS mission and diversity statement about creating and fostering a diverse and cohesive faculty, professional staff and student body as the surest way to achieve our mission.
Enrollment will be on a space-available basis as determined by the Vice President and Dean of the School of Health Professions and will be subject to an application and acceptance process. Acceptance into the TWP has four conditions: The applicant must be a full-time EVMS employee; have department chair or supervisor approval; provide a professional development plan that demonstrates how the degree/certificate will help the faculty or staff member achieve her/his professional goals and advance the missions of the department and the institution; and fulfillment of the admissions requirements for the desired program.
Applicants should note that the tuition waiver will result in taxable income to participants equal to the value of the waived tuition. Further, participants must agree to remain employed with EVMS during their time in the program and for an additional time equal to the length of their enrollment in the program. Participants will have to sign an agreement to repay the waived tuition if they leave EVMS employment prior to completing a year-for-year payback based on continued employment at EVMS.
