Degree Completion Recognition Bonus


Recently earned a bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree? Did you know that Mason departments may award recognition bonuses up to $5000?

Since January 2019, departments have been permitted to award recognition bonuses to administrative/professional faculty, instructional/research faculty, research staff, and non-probationary classified employees who earned a degree or qualifying certification. Non-student wage employees, student workers, and adjunct faculty are not eligible for the degree or certification bonus. This bonus is discretionary pay.
