Update: Diversity License Expense Reimbursements*
Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic and other factors, TSPC is experiencing delays in processing and issuing the Diversity License Expense Reimbursement Program stipends. If you submitted your request for reimbursement, we appreciate your patience. We are working as quickly as possible to review all submissions. Currently, we are processing requests received in December 2020. Once these have been reviewed, we will begin to process request forms received after the first of the year. All requests will be processed in the order they were received. Please contact LicenseReimburse.email@example.com if you have not received a status update from our office by March 1, 2021.
