Aug 05, 2021

NAEMT is pleased to announce a new diversity scholarship to help support underrepresented groups in joining the EMS profession. NAEMT will award up to four scholarships of $1,250 that may be used for tuition, fees and books.
NAEMT is committed to supporting the development of greater diversity in the EMS workforce, so that our workforce more closely reflects the communities we serve. This scholarship will provide financial support to individuals from underrepresented groups interested in pursuing their EMS education, and ultimately, a career in EMS.

Please share this information with members in your community who might be interested in this opportunity. Scholarship applications are being accepted now through September 30, 2021. View additional information or apply here.
