STOP THE BLEED® Front Line Families Scholarships

Sponsored by Z-Medica, Stop the Bleed Coalition, and Amp Your Good

The COVID-19 pandemic has given us all better appreciation of the important role that so many play in making our country work – all of those who perform their work on the Front Line – making sure we have food, teaching our children, taking care of us in hospitals and caring for the elderly. These Front Line workers join the people we usually think about – our police, our firefighters, EMTs and those serving in the military.

The Front Line Families Scholarships are being offered to high school students who have a parent or guardian who has been on the Front Line this past year. Click here  and scroll to the bottom of the page for more information. The application deadline is midnight, May 8, 2021 Eastern daylight time.
