Jimmy A. Young Memorial Award

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: Jun 1, 2024

The American Respiratory Care Foundation may award up to $1,000 in memory of Jimmy A. Young, past president of the AARC, who personally contributed greatly to respiratory care education. The foundation prefers that nominations be made by a representative of the school or an accredited respiratory training program, however, any student may initiate a request for sponsorship in order that a deserving candidate is not denied the opportunity to compete simply because the school does not initiate the application. Preference will be given to nominees of minority origin. This award consists a certificate of recognition, coach airfare, one night’s lodging, and registration for AARC Congress.

Requirements

  1. Completed application form.
  2. Must provide verification of enrollment in an accredited respiratory care training program.

Must provide letters of recommendation from the program director or other senior faculty member and from the medical director or other physician instructor attesting to: a) approval of candidate’s paper, b) candidate’s worthiness for the award, and c) candidate’s potential for a career in the profession of respiratory care.

Please note that the application deadline is June 1.

In addition to submitting some basic personal information, you will also be required to:

  • Attach an original referenced paper on some aspect of respiratory care to the online form if applying for an undergraduate award. The paper should include a cover page giving only the title of the paper, and should be devoid of any information such as applicant’s name, address, or school that could provide a bias in the evaluation.

The body of the paper should be devoid of any information such as applicant’s name, address, or school that could provide a bias in the evaluation.
