Abstract

Sponsored by the Emergency Services Foundation (ESF) of Victoria, Australia, this project investigates potential improvements to the current ESF scholarship program to increase the number of eligible personnel applying, and ultimately affected by continuing education funding. To evaluate the opinions of the emergency services population regarding the ESF scholarship, interviews were conducted and surveys were distributed. This report recommends new marketing methods, improvements to the current scholarship application process and program, as well as different training program formats to use funds most effectively for the volunteer community.
