Project appointments require a Wisconsin residency. No civil service test is required for a candidate to be considered. Project appointments will not give the appointee rights to any permanent civil service position, and do not lead to permanent status in that classification. The funding for project positions as well as the appointment of the employee may be terminated at any time prior to the project end date. The University of Wisconsin Employee Benefits Handbook discusses the available benefits for UW employees. Such benefits are similar for Project positions.
