The Grant-in-Aid Educational Leave Program provides paid educational leave to eligible employees pursuing Associates, Bachelors, Masters or Doctoral degrees. The program supports the development and retention of high-performing, qualified faculty and staff and FGCU’s commitment to diversity.
Contingent upon funding, a total of up to four awards may be given annually. The recipients may choose to use full-time leave for one semester or part-time leave for two semesters. Support Personnel (SP), Administrative/Professional (AP), and Faculty are eligible.
Applicants will be evaluated on the following criteria: Contribution to the University's diversity goals; Benefit to the University; Personal statement; Anticipated completion date of the degree; Career and educational enhancement; Length of service to FGCU; Academic record, and References. If a recipient would like to apply for a second award, they must satisfy the one-year employment requirement prior to receiving a second award.
Each GIA award recipient receives a stipend, and remains in pay status during GIA leave. No work obligations are required when full-time leave is granted. Employees granted half-time leave are required to work half-time. Undergraduate and graduate level students are expected to carry a full-time load during their leave. At the doctorate level, satisfactory progress toward the degree is required.
