SB8 Scholarships for Initial EMS Certifications
If you have ever wondered how to become one of those responders working for an EMS Agency or Fire Department on ambulances, now is a great time to start that education. The RACs have received funds provided by the Texas Legislature through the Department of State Health Services to provide scholarships for initial EMS Certifications. The scholarships cover tuition, books, and the initial National Registry test for EMT - Basic, Advanced EMT (AEMT), and/or Paramedic (EMT-P).
If you work in the Central Texas RAC Region, the first step is to complete the Central Texas RAC SB8 Scholarship application. Once you have reviewed and agreed to all requirements, submit the completed application to Central Texas RAC. Contact Christine Reeves for an application or more information.
