    Further education scholarships.

    I am currently a paramedic about to start school for a bachelors of health policy and administration. Does anyone know of any scholarships for EMS providers or any general scholarships I can apply for? My work will pay some but it is very little.

    Got kicked out of paramedic school for disability, is this a sign?

    Is this yet another sign that reaffirms EMS is not a career for me? I passed all my didactic training and my finals.
