The Medic One Foundation, in partnership with North Seattle College, has developed an EMT Scholarship Program to help remove financial barriers for individuals interested in pursuing a career in emergency medicine in Washington state.

Each quarter, a limited number of spaces will be reserved for scholarship recipients to attend the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) course at North Seattle College—the most prolific EMT training program in the region—at no cost. To learn more about North Seattle College’s EMT training program and the program’s requirements, please visit their website. For more information about becoming an EMT, potential career paths, and opportunities, please visit our FAQ page.

If you would like to contribute to the EMT Scholarship Program to help support the education and training of scholarship recipients, please follow the link below and select “Emergency Medical Technician Scholarship Program” as your gift designation.
