Additional information is available on the American Respiratory Care Foundation (ARCF) website. 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. In addition to the completed application, the applicant must submit: verification of enrollment in an accredited respiratory care training program; an official transcript verifying grade point average; an original referenced paper on some aspect of respiratory care (must include a cover page giving only the title of the paper, devoid of any information such as the applicant's name, address, or school that could provide a bias in the evaluation); and letters of recommendation from the program director or other senior faculty member, and from the medical director or other physician instructor attesting to approval of the candidate's paper, the candidate's worthiness for the award, and the candidate's potential for a career in the profession of respiratory care. It is strongly recommended that the applicant visit the ARCF website to read the specific instructions on submitting the paper. Applications should be submitted online by the deadline date. Applications will not be considered unless all supporting documents have been sent.
