Jimmy A. Young Memorial Education Recognition Award

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 the AARC Congress 2016.

Requirements
  1. Completed application form.
  2. Must provide verification of enrollment in an accredited respiratory care training program.
  3. Must provide official transcript verifying a GPA of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale, or the equivalent.
  4. An original referenced paper on some aspect of respiratory care. The paper should include a cover page giving only the title of the paper. The paper should be devoid of any information such as the applicant’s name, address, or school that could provide a bias in the evaluation.
  5. 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.
