Platinum Educational Group Expands Scholarships Program for 2016

MICH. – Platinum Educational Group, the Testing, Scheduling, and Skills Tracking Experts, understands the struggles and obstacles that are presented to students obtaining higher education in the healthcare industries. In 2015, Platinum Educational Group launched its inaugural scholarships program geared at EMS students. Recently the company has expanded its product line to include the nursing and allied health fields. It seemed only fitting to expand its 2016 scholarships program to include the hardworking and dedicated student in those fields as well.

Platinum’s goal is to provide students entering the EMS, nursing, and allied health fields with assistance in funding his or her education. Nationwide EMS medical educator, paramedic, and now Platinum CEO Doug Smith states “With the rising costs of tuition and program fees, it’s an honor to assist others in embarking on the dream of providing needed healthcare services to our communities.”

Certain guidelines must be met in order to be eligible:

* Applicant must be attending a State approved or accredited EMS, Nursing, or Allied Health Program
* Provide a copy of student ID and State Identification Card
* Letter of Recommendation Form from Program Instructor (form provided)
* Scholarship Awardees must provide a follow-up photo requested by Platinum Educational Group
* A brief essay (500 Words maximum) on what interested you in your field and what your plans are upon graduating.

There are three scholarships offered and are one-time scholarship awards. Potential candidates interested in applying need to fit the criteria above and have all paperwork submitted by July 15th, 2016. All scholarships will be decided by a panel of community advocates and winners will be announced between August 1 – 6, 2016. Each Scholarship award is for $1000 and will be given directly to the awardee’s institution.

“As we expand our company’s software programs to include the allied health industry, alongside our EMS products, we are pleased to expand our scholarships program to also include those enterprises” specified Platinum’s COO and co-founder Tom Gottschalk. He also stated, “It just feels good to assist hardworking students in obtaining their degree or certification.”
