The ASRT Foundation, philanthropic arm of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, has awarded $213, 200 in scholarships for the 2020-2021 academic year.

This year's 65 recipients include practicing professionals working toward new certifications and degrees along with entry-level students at colleges and universities throughout the United States.

Scholarship awards range from $250 up to $5,000 and are funded by the ASRT Foundation through partnerships with corporations, non-profits and generous ASRT members. The ASRT Foundation is believed to be the largest single provider of medical imaging and radiation therapy scholarships in the world.

Scholarship recipients submitted applications and were selected based on evidence of commitment, leadership, achievement and financial need. The Foundation's Scholarship Review Committee evaluated scholarship applications and provided recommendations to the Board of Trustees, which then approved the applicants.

"We're proud to lead the way in supporting students and professionals with new opportunities for advancement", said Steve Hardy, M.S., R.T.(R)(T)(CT), CMD, chief operating officer for the ASRT Foundation and executive vice president of development and corporate relations for ASRT. "Offering these scholarships is a powerful tool to develop new leaders and a way to give back to this vital profession. We couldn't do it without the generosity of our donors and corporate supporters. Thank you."
