EVMS is soliciting applications for the tuition waiver program designed to help faculty and staff further their professional development and educational endeavors. The program will support faculty and staff enrollment in several of the School of Health Professions educational programs (both graduate degree and graduate certificate programs).
The tuition waiver program 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 waiver program has three conditions: department chair or supervisor approval; 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 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.
