Hawkins Memorial EMT Scholarship

Scholarship Application Packet

The 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.
