AMRI’s Scholarship Program for Healthcare Students
Every year, thousands of selfless Americans make the decision to further their education within the healthcare field. Dedicating one’s life to caring for and treating those in need is both admirable and appreciated by those of us who understand the time, commitment and empathy that such a career choice entails. That is why American Medical Resource Institute® is proud to offer an annual scholarship that helps students in the medical field pay for their education costs.
Whether you are looking for a nursing scholarship, an EMT scholarship or any other sort of medical scholarship in a field that requires advanced life support skills, AMRI may be able to help. For 2019, we will be awarding a $1,000 scholarship to the person who submits the best essay to us (see rules below).
This is just one of the many ways that we at AMRI strive to demonstrate our commitment to the men and women who work so hard to save lives and treat those in need. We look forward to reading your entry submission and wish you the best of luck as you continue to work toward a successful career in the healthcare industry.

2019 Scholarship Recipient
AMRI is pleased to announce that Carrie Borchardt is the recipient of the 2019 scholarship for healthcare students.
Carrie is currently pursuing a doctoral degree (DNP) in nurse anesthesia at Northeastern University. Upon completion of her studies, she hopes to work as an anesthetist in a Level 1 Trauma Center. She says her passion for anesthesia goes beyond just mastering the latest advancements in the field. She aspires to one day help educate the next generation of nurse anesthetists by serving as a program director of a doctorate program at a reputable university.
"It is very important to me to impart my knowledge in this career onto a bright, new set of students who will go on to further anesthesia practice, as well as to make anesthesia more effective and affordable for our patients," she says.
