There is some current funding available through the SC Office of Rural Health for the current funding year (August 2013-July 2014). The selection process is mainly based on your zip code, (whether you live in a rural area) and if you will be providing care to those in rural areas.
The current year has funding for EMT, I-85 to AEMT and AEMT courses and Paramedic. You may apply for this funding but the main difference is that they are only going to give awards to students who are already enrolled to take the class so you mush have a registration submitted to be considered.
