American Roentgen Ray Society Scholarship

Funding Agency:
American Roentgen Ray Society

The ARRS Scholarship supports study in a field selected by the Scholar that will enable the Scholar to attain his/her professional career goal with the possibility of changing the way radiology is practiced. By giving both recognition and financial support to the activities and studies of young radiologists, the ARRS helps prepare them for positions of leadership in academic radiology. The ARRS Scholarship is funded through The Roentgen Fund® of the ARRS.

Medical schools, affiliated hospitals, and clinical research institutions with interests in training and research in diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, the basic sciences, or professions fundamental to imaging techniques are invited to submit one nomination annually.

The ARRS Roentgen Fund Board of Trustees may select up to one $140,000 award annually. The Scholar may choose a one-year program requiring a minimum 80 percent time commitment, or a two-year program requiring a minimum 50 percent time commitment. The funds may be used for salary support, for scholarship-related travel costs, toward the support of the Scholar's study, including for study outside the parent institution, or in a way that will contribute to the Scholar’s development and advancement as an academic faculty member.

The scholarship funds will be paid to the Scholar's department for funding to the recipient. In this way, the ARRS shares the responsibility with the medical institution for the Scholar's development. Payments will be made semi-annually on July 1 and January 1 for one-year scholarships, or annually on July 1 for two-year scholarships.

Only one candidate per department per institution is eligible to apply each year.
