Essay Focus

Some of the benefits of higher learning include philosophical exploration of the mind and spirit, allowing students the time needed to identify opportunities to formulate better ideas that serve others. Amidst today’s governmental changes in health care practices, mental and physical medical treatment and services are not readily available to all as limited financial resources and insurance providers continue to slip away. These are some of the challenges that college graduates will face when entering the health care job market.

The AARC Humanitarian Scholarship Program is seeking creative, solutions-based initiatives from college students that can help forge a positive path in bettering community, one life at a time. Social responsibility is more than a choice – to effectively conquer our health and wellness issues, it must be a way of life. Social responsibility is the crux of AARC in mission and our vision for the future. Recipients of our humanitarian scholarship award will represent the future of health care.

We’re looking for college students who can carry social responsibility to the next level. Your essay must reveal how your experiences, insights and passion for social responsibility in health care will provide benefits to your University of choice, the people you touch and the communities you will serve.
