Fellowship Terms & Conditions

Fellowship recipients must enroll in and attend an accredited college or university with tuition requirements in the academic year following their selection. Verification of enrollment is required. Fellowship funds will be paid via check directly to the accredited college or university in which the student is enrolled. Fellowship funds will not be paid directly, nor reimbursed, to an award recipient. Fellowship funds will be applied toward tuition fees or book purchase and other appropriate educational expenses, as determined by the Martha B. Keates Nursing Fellowship Fund Committee. For every $4,000 awarded an expectation of one year of service to AtlantiCare may be required at the discretion of ARMC. The amount of the disbursement is at the discretion of the City Auxiliary. Volunteer service at AtlantiCare is also not an indication that the recipient will be automatically rewarded; it is a competitive selection process.
