About the scholarships

Across the US, unemployment has risen since March 2020 due to the impact of COVID-19. This healthcare career training fund is intended to serve as COVID-19 relief — both to help those who lost employment as they transition to new careers, and also to help train more workers for the local healthcare system.

Climb and Snap Medical Assistant Academy partnered to offer over $250,000 in scholarships to help train 75 future medical assistants. Both companies are committed to helping people access and attain the training they need to move into growing and stable careers.
