National CPR Association Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $2,000
Awards Available: 1

In recognition of your commitment to helping others through practice of a medical profession, we at National CPR Association invite you to join our Healthcare Training Scholarship Plan to aid you in your endeavors to become a qualified professional in your chosen field.

To that end, we shall be awarding a $2,000 scholarship to the author of the winning essay and one (1) complimentary pass each to the CPR Certification program of their choice, valued at $275, to the second and third place winners. All three winning entries shall be posted on the National CPR Association’s website.

Writing Your Essay

We are looking for a 500-1000 word essay with a focus on your personal thoughts and feelings. Tell us what you think about the possibility that you may be required to perform CPR on someone to save their life – how will you handle the situation, and what kind of preparation will you undertake to ensure you are ready for and up to the task? If you have been involved already in a lifesaving scenario, we would like to read about that as well – include as many specifics as possible and relate your feelings and thoughts about the incident.

Expert knowledge of CPR is neither required not expected, since you may not have yet received training in this lifesaving procedure. Instead, we will be focused on the clarity and cohesion of your message, its sincerity and persuasiveness, and how effective it is judged to be at getting your point across.
