The Minnesota Office of Higher Ed has published a website outlining preliminary details of the MN Paramedic Scholarship Program.
The Minnesota Paramedic Scholarship will begin in Fall 2024
The Minnesota Paramedic Scholarship is a temporary scholarship program for Minnesota residents completing a paramedic diploma or degree. It was passed during the 2023 Minnesota Legislative session to increase the number of licensed paramedics in Minnesota. A one-time appropriation for $3 million will provide up to 600 scholarships of $5000 each starting Fall 2024 to be awarded by June 30, 2026.
