MSRC Scholarships 2014
Associate Degree Application
BS, MS, PhD Application
Each year, the Massachusetts Society for Respiratory Care,(MSRC) awards scholarships to students who are entering the profession of Respiratory Care, or for those practitioners who are continuing their education.
Last year, the MSRC was able to award scholarships to 10 students! These recipients represent the newest entries into our profession as well as potential leaders. Providing support for education is one of the cornerstones of the mission for the MSRC. We are continuing our challenge to all Respiratory Care programs to have at least one, but hopefully all, students apply for this award.
To be considered for the scholarship; the student must be a member of the American Association of Respiratory Care (AARC), be enrolled in and in good academic standing of an accredited respiratory care program. All applicants will be required to provide a completed application packet which includes transcript, letter of recommendation from the program director, and a completed questionnaire. All applications need to be either emailed (preferred), or postmarked by June 30, 2014. Incomplete applications will not be considered. New this year, we are strongly encouraging applicants to come to one of the monthly Board meetings to witness first-hand their society in action and to learn about how the MSRC/AARC advocates for the respiratory care profession. Any applicant that intends on attending should email
Congratulations to the 2013 scholarship recipients.
