The purpose of the Employee Tuition Reimbursement Program is to provide each employee with an opportunity to complete job related education for professional development and organizational advancement. Employees can apply what they learn directly to their job, impacting both personal performance improvement and department performance objectives. Full time employees who have been with the County for one year are eligible to receive partial reimbursement through an accredited institution.

The Donnelly Scholarship provides Kent County employees with a 25% scholarship when they attend Aquinas. Once an eligible employee receives it, it is available for seven years or graduation, whichever comes sooner (as long as that person remains a Kent County employee). It can be used for any number of classes at the undergraduate or graduate level. We have classes that begin roughly every eight weeks throughout the year.
This brief Q&A addresses the basic details about the scholarship.
Further information about programs at Aquinas is available at www.aquinas.edu/admissions/
