  Time to Apply for the Ashley - A Great Career Opportunity      
By Carmella Huser

Applications are now being accepted for the annual Alonzo W. Ashley Career Development Fellowship, which was established in 1999 in honor of Alonzo W. Ashley. Continuing the spirit of his work, the Fellowship allows an employee one year to engage in full or part-time activities that will enhance his or her career and contribute to SLACís mission. Proposed activities could include attending school, participating in on-the-job training, participating in a job rotation or creating training.

Who is Eligible?

Employees who have worked at SLAC for at least three years and have demonstrated contributions to diversity at SLAC or in their community are eligible to apply for the Ashley Fellowship. The person selected will receive his or her regular salary for the year and participate in the normal salary and performance evaluation cycles.

Approval of oneís supervisor and of others involved in the proposed activities is required. Applicants must describe these activities, explaining how they will develop their career and contribute to the SLAC mission.

Application Deadline is July 1

Proposals must be submitted to Carmella Huser, Manager of Employee Relations and Training (MS 11, Ext. 2358), by July 1. Application forms are available on-line or from Human Resources. We anticipate the Fellowship year will begin October 1, 2005 and end on September 30, 2006. Finalists will be interviewed by a selection panel, and the person selected will be notified by July 22.
