Edith Anderson Membership Subsidy
The Edith Anderson Membership Subsidy is used by STTI to underwrite up to 75 percent of the annual STTI membership fees of those requiring financial assistance.
All funds have been awarded for this fiscal year. Applications for assistance will reopen 1 July 2015. Donations to the Foundation for Nursing’s Leadership Fund can assist in meeting the growing requests for membership subsidies. Chapters are also encouraged to assist individuals.
Members: Please complete the online Request for Assistance Form after 1 July.
Chapters: You are strongly encouraged to assist worthy prospective or current members before submitting a chapter paper application to STTI.
The stipends will be furnished on a confidential basis. A maximum of US $5,000 will be allocated to the program each year, and no more than 10 members of a chapter or an at-Large chapter may benefit from the initiative. Policies governing the subsidies are completely at the discretion of the Foundation for Nursing Board of Directors.
Beneficiaries of this program may include but are not limited to:
* Undergraduate and graduate students invited to join STTI who attest that they do not have the means to pay their international/chapter induction or membership fees in their entirety. (This does not include charges for induction dinners, membership keys, honor cords or other non-dues assessments.)
* New or existing STTI members residing outside of the United States in countries designated as middle or low-income by the World Bank who find it difficult if not impossible to fulfill their membership obligations.
* Members undergoing temporary financial hardships who require assistance in order to continue their active membership.
All subsidy recipients are encouraged to contribute to the Edith Anderson Membership Subsidy, through the STTI Foundation for Nursing, when their circumstances allow.
