Education Recognition Awards Application

Use this online form to apply for the ARCF’s Education Recognition Awards. In addition to submitting some basic personal information, you will also be required to:

  1. Send supporting documents by mail to complete your application. See a list of documents.
  2. 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. More information
  3. Attach a personal essay of at least 1,200 words describing how this award will assist the applicant in reaching the objective of a degree and the candidate’s ultimate goals of leadership in health care if applying for the William W. Burgin/Robert Lawrence award. The paper should include a cover page with the author’s name, address, and phone number. 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. More information

Applications are accepted at any time; however, the deadline for accepting applications at the ARCF Office is June 15. Applications will not be considered unless all supporting documents have been sent.

Previous undergraduate award recipients are eligible to reapply. Previous postgraduate award recipients may apply for, and receive, an award a second and third year if the applicant is maintaining good standing in an advanced degree program and is the most deserving candidate in the judgment of the Board of Trustees or its designated selection committee.

 

What type of award are you interested in?


 

Select the undergraduate award(s) for which you would like to apply:

The ARCF awards up to $1,000 in memory of Morton B. Duggan, Jr. Applicants/nominees are accepted from all states, with preference given to candidates from Georgia and South Carolina.

The Foundation prefers that nominations be made by the school or program, but any student may initiate a request of sponsorship by the school in order that a deserving candidate is not denied the opportunity to compete simply because the school does not initiate the application. Preference is given to applicants of minority origin.
