BOSTON - Aug. 16, 2017 - PRLog -- The Staff at Platinum Educational Group 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. In 2016, the company expanded its product line to include the Nursing and Allied Health fields. It only seemed fitting to expand its scholarships program to include the hardworking and dedicated students in those fields as well.

Platinum's goal is to provide students entering the EMS, Nursing, and Allied Health fields with assistance in funding their education. Former high school teacher, 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."

The 2017 EMS scholarship was awarded to student Athanasia "Ethel" Ventura. Ms. Ventura is enrolled in the When Seconds Count Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) program located in Salem, MA. Ethel's decision to become an EMT is due to the kindness and expertise of paramedics she met while experiencing her own medical emergency. She would like to emulate those traits in her goal of becoming a care provider in EMS.  "I hope to show my future patients that their lives are of great importance and value." stated Ms. Ventura.

In 2017 Platinum Educational Group offered three $1000 scholarships, but the company plans on expanding its program with the addition of more scholarship offerings in the near future.

"After receiving applications throughout the U.S., as well as internationally, we feel there is a definite need for our scholarship offerings" said Platinum's COO and co-founder Tom Gottschalk. He also stated, "It just feels good to give back."
