We all are aware of the high tuition fees of professional courses like emergency medicine. Medical Universities charge a huge amount of fees to students that even the scholarships funded by the universities do not cover the whole. Therefore that forces many students to do part-time jobs side by side to cover their expenses. But that doesn’t help them focus completely on their studies. Medicine is a course that requires a lot of focus and attention so students must keep their all concentration on their studies and not elsewhere.
In view of that, The Medic One Foundation, in partnership with North Seattle College has started an EMT scholarship program to provide financial assistance to students who are facing financial barriers in pursuing their dream career in emergency medicine. Every quarter, a limited number of seats are reserved for the scholarship recipients to attend the Emergency Medical Technician course at North Seattle college at no cost. The recipients of this scholarship will be awarded the one-time scholarship amount of $2,000 for covering their college expenses and a small stipend to cover their travel costs. Applications are ending soon so make sure to book a seat for yourself.
The medic one foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving the lives of people by improving and advancing pre-hospital emergency care. With more than 40 years of experience and research, they have provided support to many critical programs of the emergency medical system through fundraising, advocacy, and collaboration. Their team consists of many professional medical advisors who are internationally recognized as industry experts.
