ASRT Foundation Awards More Than $350,000 in Scholarships for 2023-2024 Academic Year

Jun. 5, 2023

The ASRT Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, has awarded $357,325 in scholarships to 85 recipients for the 2023-2024 academic year. This is the highest scholarship dollar amount the ASRT Foundation has awarded to date.

This year's recipients include practicing professionals working toward new certifications and degrees along with entry-level students attending colleges and universities throughout the United States. The Foundation offers 22 scholarships annually ranging from $500 up to $5,000. The scholarships are funded through partnerships with corporations, non-profits and generous ASRT members.

The Foundation Scholarship Review Committee completed the scholarship application review process in February. Applicants were selected based on evidence of commitment, leadership, achievement and financial need. The committee provided its recommendations to the Foundation Board of Trustees, which then approved the applicants.

In 2023, the ASRT Foundation added the SkinCure Oncology Radiation Therapy Scholarship to its portfolio to support students seeking a certification in radiation therapy. SkinCure Oncology provides a comprehensive model for the delivery of image-guided superficial radiotherapy, the most advanced technology for the treatment of common skin cancers.

“Awarding the largest dollar amount in the Foundation’s history is a testament to the support our donors, partners and members offer the current and future generations of radiologic technologists,” 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. “The Foundation is committed to ensure that both working and emerging technologists have the tools they need to achieve their academic dreams and the support needed to become leaders in the profession.”
