Frank Monteith Fellowship Program, The Fulton-Dekalb Hospital Authority

Frank Monteith Fellowship Program, The Fulton-Dekalb Hospital Authority

Role Description

The Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority Fellowship Program bears the name of former Board of Trustees member, the late Frank H. Monteith. Mr. Monteith had an entrepreneurial spirit and started his own transportation company – the largest and oldest minority owned limousine service in the Southeast – which he owned and operated for 43 years. Mr. Monteith was a member of the Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority Board of Trustees for nine years and left a legacy of entrepreneurship and generosity. Graduate students will be afforded an opportunity to participate in a Fellowship program in honor of Mr. Monteith.

This program integrates academics with practical experience. It is an opportunity for a student to assist the organization with a project or initiative related directly or indirectly to the student’s academic work. It is designed to provide an opportunity for the student to gain knowledge and valuable work experience in the health arena, which incorporates many disciplines. Some of the fields that are potentially available for student fellowships include, but are not limited to public health, public policy, policy administration, marketing, public relations, finance, and sociology. The Fellowship Program provides opportunities to:

  • Develop professional work habits
  • Explore career objectives
  • Earn funds to support college education
  • Apply classroom learning to the work setting and earn academic credit (course or practicum credit)
  • Gain valuable work experience and professional contacts that will help in securing employment after graduation

  • Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the United States Of America;

Any student in the United States meeting the above requirements may apply for fellowship, but preference will be given to those students who are attending a college, university or vocational/technical school in Georgia. If at any point in the fellowship program, the fellow ceases to be enrolled in school, he/she will no longer be eligible to participate. In that event, the fellow will immediately be terminated from the program.


Fellowship Duration

The fellowship shall be for a maximum of 10 weeks, a semester. Exact starting and ending dates and daily schedules will be arranged between the fellow and The FDHA.

Fellows shall receive a three thousand dollar ($4,000) scholarship. Fellows must work at least 15 hours per week for the duration of the fellowship. Should the fellow fail to return to school after the fellowship is complete, the fellow will not be eligible for a scholarship.

Fellow must choose scholarship paid directly to school or course credit and/or practicum, they may not choose both.
