Employment Training Agreement:

  • To participate in the University of Texas at Dallas Doctoral Partnership program, employees are required to sign an Employment Training Agreement.
  • By signing this agreement, the employee agrees that if he/she voluntarily leaves full-time employment within the period of the agreement, the employee will fund a $2,000 annual scholarship to the Collin County Community College District Foundation, Inc.

Continuation of Scholarship:

Scholarship recipients must re-apply every year for the scholarship, noting progress made towards degree during the previous year. Progress is defined as generally completing three courses per academic year (September through August.)  A maximum of five years can be granted toward completion of the doctoral degree through this scholarship program.

To be considered for the scholarship renewal, the administrator must complete the re-application section of the application form in accordance with the applicable time line and submit the form along with a copy of the most recent transcript to Sheri Eadie in the Professional Development Office.  The remaining steps in the application process will be conducted, beginning with a review by the Selection Committee.
