Lindberg Scholarship

The Carl Lindberg Memorial Scholarship

In honor of Carl Lindberg, the first Executive Director of the Northern California EMS agency

Benefiting those in the Nor-Cal EMS

Expand EMS skills

The Carl Lindberg Memorial Scholarship fund was established in the 1970's in honor of the first Executive Director of the Northern California EMS agency. Scholarships are awarded annually to members of the Nor-Cal EMS system who are seeking training to become an EMR, EMT, AEMT, Paramedic, or Mobile Intensive Care Nurse. Recipients must live in a county contracting with Nor-Cal EMS.

Recipients typically have made exceptional contributions and personal sacrifices in the EMS field for many years, often as volunteers. The scholarships are used to help defray the costs of tuition, books, and the extensive travel often necessary to complete advanced training and internships. In many cases, these people receive no other financial assistance or compensation.

Scholarships are funded by investment dividends paid each year on the scholarship fund. All contributions go directly to help provide more substantial and numerous awards to this extraordinarily deserving group of men and women. Because contributions are added to the fund's principal, each will continue to support improved emergency medical care in northeastern California for years to come.

The scholarship fund is administered by Northern California EMS, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public benefit corporation. Gifts to the fund can be made by donations to:

Carl Lindberg Memorial Scholarship
930 Executive Way, Suite 150
Redding, CA 96002-0635
All contributions are tax deductible.
