    Default Grants/Scholarships

    I am a volunteer firefighter/emt in Illinois. I am enrolled to begin paramedic school in January. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to find grant/scholarship money? I have heard there is a lot out there, just don't know where to look.

    Thanks!

    (I have already applied for FAFSA...just doesn't look like that is going to offer much help.)

    If you're paying the tuition, it may (MAY) be eligible for a personal income tax credit or deduction. I'm not up to speed on that, so check with someone who knows

    Your department can apply for SAFER for an R&R project to cover college tuition costs which can then be used for just about anything. Otherwise the only outlet would be the school itself to see what grants/scholarships they have. They can apply to private foundations for scholarship money so that they can then offer them to students, but no one gives grants to individuals.
