Scholarships for Radiology Nursing
Radiology is a fascinating field to get into, but for obvious reasons, has an expensive education. Thankfully there are many scholarships available to help radiological students out there. If you are a student member of American Association of Radiologic Technicians, you can apply for scholarships from your first term of school through your last.
- The Howard S. Stern Scholarship is available in non-renewable increments of $1,000 for both grads and undergrads in a radiological technology program. Students must fill out an application with an essay and letters of recommendation plus be able to prove they are members of AART by Feb. 1st of every year. You do not need to be a U.S. citizen to apply. Must also have at least one year experience in radiology or related field and verified on letter head.
- Jerman-Cahoon Student Scholarships are offered to beginning radiology students. Scholarship awards annually are up to $2500, and the same application process applies because it’s offered by AART.
- If you’re a minority student, AART also has a bonus scholarship for you. The Royce Osborn Student Minority Scholarship grants five scholarships of $4,000 each annually to minority students who show promise in this field and who show academic excellence across the board.
Additionally, if you want to go beyond a bachelor’s degree in radiology, there are professional scholarships available to help you meet that goal. Again, you must be a member of AART and follow their guidelines to apply. To access the entry level and professional level scholarships, visit their website at:http://www.asrtfoundation.org/Default.aspx . There you can download the materials and instructions you need to apply. AART is wonderful for helping students find other resources and even lists them on their site.
Every state has its own radiological society for professionals that are also willing to provide scholarships for students seeking a degree and career in the field. Specific colleges that target the field and offer their own curricula for radiology students, again, have scholarships available for the program. They are too numerous to go into, because fifty states and two hundred schools have them. Just be aware that if you are planning on going to a radiology school in a particular state, there are probably at least two to three additional scholarships available for where you’re planning to go. The awards are approximately $250-$5,000, depending on where you go and how quickly you apply.
