Scholarships For NEMT
For transportation companies on tight budgets, it can be hard to find affordable training opportunities for management. That’s why we are offering scholarships for Massachusetts transportation companies.
You can use these scholarships for leadership training, technical aspects of the evolving industry, safety standards, and more. Scholarships may also be used for education toward fleet accreditation in the burgeoning $3 billion industry of non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT).
If you have additional ideas for how you would use scholarship funds for your fleet, tell us more! Email us at email@example.com.
Scholarships for fleets are first come, first served, and will be disbursed on a rolling basis until expended.
Scholarships for Drivers
Taxi and livery drivers licensed to provide commercial passenger transportation in Massachusetts are eligible to receive an educational scholarship.
Individual drivers may apply for the scholarship. Also, taxi and livery companies may apply for the scholarships for the drivers affiliated with their company. The scholarships will pay up to $150 (retail price) per driver for educational/training programs.
Some of our pre-approved programs include: helping drivers enter the NEMT industry which provides vital, life-saving trips for passengers in need of scheduled medical treatments, including for chemotherapy and dialysis. We will offer scholarships to Massachusetts drivers to become certified NEMT drivers through the Non Emergency Medical Transportation Accreditation Commission (NEMTAC). Learn more about the Certified Transport Specialist and the Conflict Resolution Course. We have also pre-approved the Defensive Driving courses offered by the National Safety Council (NSC).
All requested educational training programs will be reviewed before being approved. It is anticipated that most of the educational training will be accomplished online, as travel expenses are not an eligible expense for this scholarship.
We’ve launched a webinar series to bring you the latest information on how to diversify your fleet, reaching new passengers, increasing customer satisfaction and more.
