Ralph J. Barron, Jr. Scholarship Funds
Individuals served is linked to the quality of education of the administrators of the entities that serve them. Our Past President and Region II Governor, the late Ralph J. Barron, Jr., felt the same way. Education and professional growth of the long-term care administrator were very important to Ralph J. Barron Jr. In his memory, the New York Chapter has created the Ralph J. Barron, Jr. Scholarship Fund. The fund has a singular objective: to help underwrite the cost of education of new members to our profession and college chapter. Each year, the New York Chapter will award $1,000 in scholarship grants.
For the purposes of this fund, a scholarship means a financial award to help a student of a bona fide academic institution continue (proactive) his/her studies in the field of health care administration. A grant means a financial award to an individual to underwrite the cost of furthering his/her knowledge in the profession of health care administration. This distinction is made to allow for funding of knowledge enhancing projects that are not part of traditional academic programs, e.g. seminars, conferences, research activities, etc. The award can be for work already completed (retroactive) or for purposes that well be implemented 3-6 months in the future (proactive).
Individuals who wish to apply for each year must:
1. Be enrolled in an AIT program by January of the award year or be enrolled in a recognized university/college training program for health care administration.
