ASRT Foundation Adds New Scholarship Opportunities worth more than $20,000 for 2021-2022

Oct. 20, 2020

The ASRT Foundation, philanthropic arm of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, will offer a record number of scholarship opportunities for the 2021-2022 academic year worth more than $250,000.

The Foundation plans to add three new scholarships totaling more than $20,000 for the upcoming scholarship award season. The new scholarship opportunities are designed to improve diversity and inclusion in health care, and support new opportunities in specific areas of practice, including mammography, radiation therapy and dosimetry. The debut scholarships include:

  • Elekta Radiation Therapy Scholarship for Black Students
    Improving diversity, inclusion and representation in the health care industry was top of mind when Elekta created a scholarship for Black radiation therapy students. Two scholarship recipients will receive $5,000 each to put toward their educational expenses.
  • Hologic Inc. Mammography Scholarship
    This professional-level scholarship supports radiographers pursuing educational opportunities that will prepare them to take the mammography certification exam. The Foundation will award two selected applicants $4,300 each.
  • Northern California Society of Radiation Therapists Scholarship
    The award supports individuals who are or will be enrolled in a radiation therapy or dosimetry program and professional-level radiation therapists enrolled in a medical dosimetry program. It offers one $1,500 scholarship this season. 

ASRT Foundation scholarship awards range from $500 up to $5,000 and are funded by the ASRT Foundation through partnerships with corporations, non-profits and generous ASRT members. Recipients include practicing professionals working toward new certifications and degrees along with entry-level students at colleges and universities throughout the United States. The ASRT Foundation is known as the largest single provider of medical imaging and radiation therapy scholarships in the world.

Scholarship recipients must be ASRT members and are selected based on evidence of commitment, leadership, achievement and financial need. The Foundation's Scholarship Review Committee evaluates all scholarship applications and provides recommendations for final selection to the Board of Trustees.
