The For Paul Foundation is excited to announce that since we started in 2020 we have been able to award over $12,000 in scholarships to high school seniors and those in college pursuing EMS careers.
Thanks to all of our sponsors but especially our partner IAFF Local #4321 for helping us make this happen.
In 2022 we we able to offer a scholarship to first responders that would like to continue their education. with the help of The South Florida F.O.O.L.S. to offer the inaugural Strike a Box Scholarship for Paramedics and EMTs that wish to pursue a career in the Fire Service.
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.
