BELLEVUE—Medic One Foundation is partnering with North Seattle College to offer ten full training scholarships to future Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT). There is a high demand for EMTs in King County and surrounding communities. EMTs are trained to provide emergency medical care and safely transport patients in various settings. Individuals with an EMT certification can go on to become firefighters, emergency room technicians, etc.
The scholarships are made possible through charitable donations to the Medic One Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives by improving pre-hospital emergency care. “The goal of these scholarships is to help remove financial barriers for individuals interested in pursuing a career in emergency medicine in Washington state,” said Kim Martin, Executive Director for Medic One Foundation. “Thanks to the community’s generosity, we can offer up to 30 scholarships this year.”
Applicants can download an application by visiting https://www.mediconefoundation.org/emt/.
The deadline to apply for the scholarships is Friday, March 7, 2024. The training class will begin at North Seattle College on April 1. The scholarship covers 100% of the tuition and fees, books, supplies, and a small stipend to offset travel costs to and from campus. Scholarship applicants are required to attend an informational seminar on either February 9th or 13th. Scholarship applicants must complete and pass the North Seattle College EMT entrance exam, which is offered on February 26 at 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
