Platinum Educational Group Offers Scholarships to EMS Students



Platinum Educational Group, the Testing, Scheduling, and Skills Tracking Experts, understands the struggles and obstacles that are presented to students obtaining higher education in the healthcare industries. In 2015, Platinum Educational Group launched its inaugural scholarships program geared at EMS students. In 2016, the company expanded its product line to include the Nursing and Allied Health fields. It seemed only fitting to expand its scholarship program to include the hardworking and dedicated students in those fields as well. Platinum is proud to continue offering $1000 scholarships in each of those industries in 2019.


Platinum’s goal is to provide students entering the EMS, nursing, and allied health fields with assistance in funding his or her education. Platinum Educational Group CEO, Doug Smith, states “Our annual scholarships program is something we really get excited about at Platinum. It is an extensive process determining the awardees, but in the end, we feel like we have made a difference.”


There are three scholarships offered and are one-time awards. Potential candidates interested in applying need to fit the criteria below and have all paperwork submitted by July 15th, 2019. All scholarships will be decided by a panel of community advocates and awardees will be announced August 2nd, 2019. Each scholarship award is for $1000 and will be given directly to the awardee’s institution.
