What does the tournament support?

Every year the tournament raises money to support the Janet B. Royster Memorial Staff Scholarship Fund. The purpose of the Fund is to provide scholarship(s) to full-time, permanent non-faculty employees who are taking either undergraduate or graduate-level courses at an accredited institution of higher education, or enrolled in approved – short courses, licensure, certificate or continuing education programs that supports staff development. The Fund has been established in memory of Janet B. Royster, a UNC-TV employee who provided important leadership, knowledge and dedication to the UNC Staff Assembly where she served as its first Parliamentarian until her untimely death in June 2011.

The intent of the scholarship is to cover the out-of-pocket expenses for one undergraduate or graduate course per year (tuition, fees, books) to a non-faculty employee after eligibility for the tuition-free course is exhausted, or for a short-term professional development program. The goal is to ensure the continued support of professional development opportunities for UNC System staff.
