Professional Development Reimbursement

We’re pleased to support your professional development! Get reimbursed for attending a training, course, or conference until June 30. Submit a completed PDR application within 60 business days of completing each training and receive reimbursement—up to $1,500. 

To be eligible for a PDR, you must be a:

  • Current/active member of the Alaska SEED Registry
  • Early childhood or school-age professional operating or working as a paid employee of a licensed (State of Alaska or Municipality of Anchorage) child care facility, Head Start, or pre-elementary school district program, or a State of Alaska Child Care Assistance Program approved child care facility

Guidelines for Reimbursement

While you choose your professional development path, you must meet the following guidelines and deadlines to receive up to $1,500 in reimbursements. Use a portion — up to $500 — for trainings and conferences, and use the remainder (or the entire $1,500) for higher education.

PDR funds will be reduced by the amount of other scholarships and/or financial aid you have already received.
