The For Paul Foundation is excited to announce that since our inception in 2020 we have been able to award over $22,500 in scholarships to those wishing to start a career in EMS as either an EMT, Paramedic, or Firefighter. Thanks to all of our sponsors but especially our partners IAFF Local #4321 and The South FLorida F.O.O.L.S. for helping us ensure those wishing to enter the field are able to without financial limitations.
Unfortunately, the cost of education is great and many first responders are unable to cover the costs of education or have the ability to take some time off to complete necessary requirements. Scholarships can greatly help them achieve their goals of continuing to serve the public and we will continue to add additional opportunities as available.
