This is the first time the coveted scholarships were opened up nationwide, calling to a crowd of applicants from ProTransport-1, PRN Ambulance, Century Ambulance Service, ATS Ambulance and Priority One Ambulance.

The Art McDonald Educational Scholarship was first started years ago as a means to respect those truly motivated enough to seek higher levels of education in healthcare, the same way the late Art McDonald did. Art’s legacy lives on, not only through the recipients, but through the actions of all who perform selfless acts of kindness toward those in need.
