Courtesy Scholarships simplified for 2006
Human Resources (HR) and Student Services (admission, financial aid, registrar and student financial services) have joined forces to streamline and improve the Courtesy Scholarship process for University and Emory Healthcare (EHC) employees.

Use of Courtesy Scholar-ships requires a two-part application process. Employees or eligible spouses/same-sex partners/dependents must apply first for admission to an academic program through that program’s procedures. After gaining admission, individuals are granted an OPUS account, which they will then use to
request the Courtesy Scholarship benefit. This online procedure has replaced the paper-form process previously used for courtesy applications.

Also new for University employees is the ability to check Courtesy Scholarship eligibility using HR’s self-service system and clicking on the “Benefits” section. The site displays eligibility and instructions. EHC
employees should continue to verify eligibility through their respective HR benefits offices.

Finally, Courtesy Scholarships now will be centrally processed and administered within the Office of Student Financial Services, and Elizabeth Barrett will serve as Courtesy Scholarship administrator. For more information, contact Barrett at 404-727-1202 or via e-mail at courtesyquestions@emory.edu.
