This year’s 66 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.

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, executive vice president of development and corporate relations. “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.”
