The First Aid Awareness Scholarship

Inside First Aid is proud to announce the 2019 First Aid Awareness Scholarship. Effective first aid can save lives, decrease hospital visits, decrease recovery time from injuries, save money, and more. The first responders to an emergency are usually average citizens and not paid professionals. Our mission is to educate the general population about helpful first aid techniques and equipment to improve prehospital care across the country.

Each semester, we select one applicant to receive $500 towards their higher education at an officially accredited university, college, or trade school.

Scholarships are awarded twice a year for Spring and Fall Semesters.

Winners will be featured on our website!
