Top 10 Scholarships and Grants for Ultrasound Technician
Ultrasound technicians are in demand, but not everyone can afford to attend the necessary schooling.
The United States Federal Government rewards aspiring students who are determined to obtain an ultrasound tech degree. For those so dedicated but financially limited, there are several scholarships and grants for students that not only assist in payment for schooling, but may also help with living expenses while in school.
Any entity offering a scholarship or grant wants to be assured the student is a serious seeker of the ultrasound tech degree. While conducting research on scholarships is obvious due diligence, also keep your SAT score handy, as well as a written essay expressing your career decision. Many schools will demand credentials (and some references) up front.
It is advisable to complete an Application for Federal Student Aid when applying to universities. This will aid the chance of receiving not only a scholarship, but also federal student loans at low-interest rates.
