AtlantiCare Scholars Program

As part of our ongoing efforts to help displaced casino employees, AtlantiCare has initiated a scholarship program to assist members of the community to start or further a career in healthcare. AtlantiCare has partnered with Atlantic Cape Community College to enable selected applicants to choose from one of four courses of study. Approximately 60 scholarships will be awarded over the next three years.

We aim to accept a variety of community members with diverse backgrounds into the AtlantiCare Scholars program. 

If you are interested in learning more about this unique opportunity, please review the eligibility criteria and application process below.

 

Eligibility Criteria

All recently displaced casino employees from Trump Taj Mahal, Revel, Showboat, Trump Plaza, and the Atlantic Club are eligible to apply to the program. Displaced employees of businesses within these casinos are also eligible. A limited number of scholarships are also available to current AtlantiCare employees.

Available Programs of Study

AtlantiCare has partnered with Atlantic Cape Community College to offer four career study tracks. Each is an area of need within the health care field, and at AtlantiCare specifically. Each of these courses will be offered once each year for the next three years. Please refer to the grid below for additional details:

Application Process

The AtlantiCare Scholars Program is designed to assist community members who are dedicated to taking on a new career for themselves.  While we cannot guarantee a job with AtlantiCare upon completion of the course and certificate exam, we have selected these particular courses because we believe they will be in demand and we certainly hope to hire as many scholarship recipients as possible.  Because of this our application process is quite thorough and includes an in-person interview to ensure a match to AtlantiCare’s values (Service, Teamwork, Integrity, Respect, Safety). 

  1. Applicant reviews class details and decides on class most appropriate for them.
  2. Applicant submits online application below.
  3. AtlantiCare reviews applications and selects top applicants for in-person interviews.
  4. AtlantiCare selects scholarship recipients and refers them on to Atlantic Cape.
  5. Applicant enrolls in class and submits to Atlantic Cape’s prerequisites (criminal background check, drug screening, immunizations, TABE academic testing, in some cases proof of High School Diploma or GED).
  6. If prerequisites are successfully completed the applicant is ready to take the class.  If prerequisites are not successfully completed that spot is opened up to another applicant.
