Union Education Trust
The Union Education Trust (UET) provides eligible State of Ohio bargaining unit employees with educational financial assistance for college, vocational school, computer training and short-term training seminars and conferences.
The union-negotiated Trust develops programs that help bargaining unit union employees advance their careers, improve their quality of work life and work towards achieving employment security. And best of all, the program is available from day one of employment for eligible full-time and part-time employees in active pay status.
Trust programs provide financial assistance to defray the cost of employees participating in education and training programs including:
Career Improvement Program (CIP) offers up to $4,000 per fiscal year (July 1-June 30) of financial assistance for college-credit courses and Vocational Training and Specialty Education. Learn more about CIP at UEdTrust.org.
Computer Application Training (CAT) offers up to $750 per fiscal year (July 1-June 30) of financial assistance for non-college credit computer training courses. Learn more about CAT at UEdTrust.org.
Professional Enhancement Program (PE) offers up to $1,500 per fiscal year (July 1-June 30) of financial assistance for non-college credit, short-term training opportunities that are not covered by CIP or CAT. Learn more about PE at UEdTrust.org.
