Tuition Assistance

Once you have worked at St. Clare for one year, you may also qualify for Tuition Assistance, which covers tuition, fees, and book costs for a wide variety of healthcare education programs at regional colleges and universities. But even if you have not yet worked at St. Clare for one year, please contact us to explore academic support and resources, career planning, and how we can help you reach your goals.

  • Tuition Assistance application deadline: We typically accept applications year-round and award Tuition Assistance after October 15. But based on your joining date of April 1, we have a different deadline for St. Clare members. We encourage members to contact us early to work with a Training Fund Navigator on your education plan.
    • Initial application window: April 1 – June 15 (to cover school between Fall 2022 through Spring 2023 quarters)
    • Next application window: October 15 deadline (to cover the 2023–24 academic year)
  • If you are planning to go to school during or after Summer 2022, please apply for Tuition Assistance between April 1 and June 15. Learn more about Tuition Assistance.
  • If you are currently in school and have already been receiving Tuition Reimbursement from your previous Education Fund, you may be able to add Tuition Assistance from the Training Fund. Please contact us to discuss this, or attend a Benefits Review Meeting (see below).
