Jimmy A. Young Memorial Award


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

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.

B) Must provide verification of enrollment in an accredited respiratory care training program.
