2017 Student Scholarships for EMS, Nursing, and Allied Health Programs!

Platinum Educational Group 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 has expanded its product line to include Nursing and Allied health fields. Platinum is proud to continue offering $1,000 scholarships in each of these industries in 2017.

Platinum’s goal is to provide students entering the EMS, Nursing, and Allied health fields with assistance in funding their education. Nationwide EMS medical educator, paramedic, and Platinum CEO Doug Smith states “With the rising costs of tuition and program fees, it’s an honor to assist others in embarking on the dream of providing needed healthcare services to our communities.”

“Every year this scholarship program grows and positively impacts the learners we serve with our software solutions.” specified Platinum’s COO and co-founder Tom Gottschalk. He also stated, “I am grateful we have the means and methods of support to assist candidates that will become a part of the medical profession in the future.”
