The Christopher D. Redding Youth Asthma Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization with the mission of educating, advocating, and providing services for youth and families that are affected by a life which includes asthmatic conditions. The focus of the foundation is to lessen the adverse health effects on asthmatic children and young adults that are involved in athletics.
As a part of our foundational charter, the Christopher D. Redding Youth Asthma Foundation seeks to award annual scholarships to qualified high school seniors who are student-athletes and who have a medically documented diagnosis of asthma.
Scholarship applications are made available to assist with college education expenses for those students that have been confirmed to attend a two-year community college or a four-year college or university as a full-time student the following Fall. Scholarship award recipients will receive an award no less than $2,000.00.
To be considered for this college scholarship, a student must meet the following criteria:
1. You are a high school senior graduating by June of the current school year.
2. You participate in (a minimum of one) high school sports activity.
3. You have been involved in charitable activities such as community service or volunteer work.
4. You can provide documented evidence of an asthma medical condition by a medical professional.
All applications will be reviewed and selected by the Board of Directors of the Christopher D. Redding Youth Asthma Foundation. Scholarship recipients will be based upon student essay submissions, letters of recommendation provided by both a high school athletic director or coach and community service organization, and the content submitted on the attached student application form that has been provided.
There are two opportunities to submit the Initial Online Application:
- Early Application Deadline for the Class of 2017 is May 27, 2016.
- Regular Application Deadline for the Class of 2017 is September 15, 2016.
Please note that a transcript and two (2) recommendations are required as part of the application process. These must be completed by the application deadline or your submission will not be considered.

Reward funds will be administered directly to the Financial Aid Office at the institution chosen by the recipient of the award. If an applicant who is awarded a Cameron Impact Scholarship earns another merit-based scholarship (i.e. military, athletics), the Foundation will discuss how the financial reward might be deferred to other educational expenses down the line. Annual renewal of the Cameron Impact Scholarship will be dependent upon continued attendance, good academic standing, and an acceptable code of conduct. Evidence of misconduct as determined by the Foundation, school, and legal authorities would result in withdrawal of any funds from the Foundation.
Recipients of the Cameron Impact Scholarship will be required to attend an annual Cameron Impact Scholars Award Ceremony and Summit for the duration of the Scholarship. Graduates of the Scholarship program are strongly encouraged to attend this annual event as well.
