Additional Sponsorship for Research Administrators
There may be other funds available through your Harvard University School or College. Please check with your HR representative to explore any additional funding resources for the professional development of research administrators. In some cases, certain Harvard University Schools and Colleges offer additional sponsorship for the Graduate Programs in Research Administration.
These additional supplements are for Harvard University professional employees and those who are members of HUCTW, who are taking courses in the Graduate Certificate in Research Administration from Emmanuel College. In some cases these employees are eligible to receive between $1,000 - 4,000 per fiscal year reimbursement for tuition not covered by the combination of benefits from TAP or the Education Assistance Fund.
To apply for benefits, employees should submit a Program Application to Human Resource Services at the School or College at which they work within 60 days of completing a course, and attach copies of completed TAP forms, Education Assistance Fund forms, and tuition bills. A grade of B or better is required to be eligible for reimbursement.
