Promotion Project

Find out how a UC San Diego department can get funds for training through the Promotion Project program.

Note: Promotion Project funding will not be available for FY 2018-2019.

The Promotion Project provides up to $1,000 in training funds to UC San Diego departments that promote UC San Diego career employees via reclassification or open recruitment.

Purpose (Subject to change)

The goal of the Promotion Project, a career development program, is to develop and retain UC San Diego staff by creating opportunities for employees to advance at UC San Diego. This goal is achieved through a unique strategy — offering monetary support to the hiring department for the employee's training needs within the first 6 months of the appointment.

Note: Before your department is considered for funding, you must also complete and submit a Training Request Form.

Promotion Project funds will be earmarked for 6 months only once you are approved. If funds are not used within the 6-month period, they may be forfeited. Please notify the Promotion Project coordinator if there are any changes.
