Damar Hamlin, the Buffalo Bills defenseman who needed emergency care last January when he collapsed on the football field due to cardiac arrest, is paying tribute to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center staff by establishing a scholarship program for the youth of Cincinnati, CBS News reports.

The Chasing M’s Foundation, Hamlin’s charity, will be awarding $1,000 scholarships to 10 people in underserved communities in Cincinnati for the next three years. Each scholarship will be named after “the 10 first-responders, nurses, and doctors who treated Hamlin after he suffered a cardiac arrest mid-game last season.”

The charity has pledged $10,000 per year over the next three years to underwrite the initiative.
