Hawkins Memorial EMT Scholarship

The Ridgecrest Regional Hospital Foundation (RRHF)

Fred Hawkins Memorial EMT Scholarship Fund

The RRHF has established the Fred Hawkins Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Memorial Scholarship in honor of all the work Fred has done in support of EMT programs across our city, county, state and beyond. The Foundation seeks to strengthen and build a better future for our community through EMT education. One of the challenges facing EMT today is recruitment and retention of EMT practitioners. In an effort to address this challenge, the Foundation is offering scholarship opportunities to individuals interested in pursuing a career in EMT in our community (defined as encompassing the Cerro Coso Community college sites).

Application Process & Deadlines: Applicant eligibility is limited to those who live or are seeking education and employment within the CCCC sites: Bishop, California City, Edwards AFB, Kern River Valley, Mammoth Lakes, Ridgecrest/IWV, Tehachapi. Applications for the Spring Semester MUST be received by October 1st of the previous year. Applications for the Fall Semester MUST be received by June 1st. Applications will be reviewed by members of the Scholarship Committee, who will determine which candidates will be interviewed. The candidate selected to receive the Scholarship will be notified within approximately 30 days from the application deadlines.

Amount of Award: The scholarship funds will be paid out in two increments, for a total of $1200. Upon class completion, the testing fee for the National Registry of EMTs will be paid by RRH Foundation as well.
