Billings Clinic Foundation offers Emergency Medical Services Scholarships
Billings, MT— Billings Clinic Foundation is now accepting applications for two Emergency Medical Services (EMS) scholarships. Applications are due by October 14, 2016. Awards will be announced at the annual Big Sky EMS Education Symposium in Billings on November 11-12, 2016.
The Gary Haigh EMS Scholarship honors the memory of Gary Haigh, a highly respected EMT, Paramedic, and EMS Trainer who worked throughout the state of Montana. Gary died tragically from injuries received in a vehicle accident while on his way to teach an EMT class. The purpose of the scholarship is to help an organization maintain or upgrade to a higher EMS system provider level or to help provide EMS continuing education for pre-hospital and emergency department personnel.
The Geoffrey T. Corbin Scholarship honors the memory of Geoffrey T. Corbin, who worked in the Emergency Department at Billings Clinic and died tragically in an automobile accident as a young man. Family and friends donated funds to establish an endowment to fund scholarships for those who cannot pay for EMT or paramedic training and to honor his passion and commitment to emergency services. Eligible students must currently be accepted to or enrolled in an EMT training course certified by the State of Montana or a two-year accredited Paramedic training program in Montana.
To request an application for either scholarship, please contact Billings Clinic Foundation at 2917 10th Avenue North or call 406-657-4670.
