Healthcare profession and EMS scholarships available from Adirondack Health Foundation
SARANAC LAKE – Whether you are a student aspiring to a career in healthcare or an emergency responder seeking to advance your skills, the Adirondack Health Foundation offers financial resources to achieve your goals.
This year, the Foundation is awarding three, $3,500 scholarships to traditional or non-traditional students from the northern Adirondacks and Tri-Lakes region who have been accepted to an approved Nursing or Allied Health program. Recipients may receive funding a second year if they maintain a 3.0 or better cumulative grade point average.
And, in recognition of the important role Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers play in the North Country, the Foundation has earmarked up to $50,000 for scholarships to advance EMS education. EMS crews throughout the Adirondacks and North Country face the dual challenge of dwindling volunteers and finances. The scholarships are intended to help mitigate these challenges.
The scholarship funds are available to assist EMS providers in Adirondack Health’s service areas with the cost of Paramedic, EMT, BLS/ACLS training or other EMS-related Continuing Medical Education. Contact Dr. A.J. Dowidowicz at (518) 897-2570 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
