Founded in 1900, the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) is the first and oldest radiology society in the United States. The society has been a forum for progress in radiology since shortly after the discovery of the X-ray and is dedicated to the goal of the advancement of medicine through the science of radiology and allied disciplines.
To advance this mission, ARRS welcomes nominations for the ARRS Scholarship. The scholarship supports early-career faculty members in study/research in the radiologic sciences that has the possibility of changing the way radiology is practiced. Scholarship awards of $180,000 over two years are intended to provide salary support; cover the cost of scholarship-related travel (including travel to the ARRS annual meeting for selection and presentation years); and support scholars’ study related to the project plan, including study outside the parent institution (training/tuition expenses may not exceed 20 percent of total scholarship funding).
Up to two awards are given annually. Medical schools, affiliated hospitals, and clinical research institutions with interest in training and research related to diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, the basic sciences, or professions fundamental to imaging techniques are invited to submit one nomination per year.
To be eligible, candidates must be an ARRS member at the time the application is submitted and for the duration of the award; have earned an MD or DO (or equivalent) from an accredited institution and completed all required residency and fellowship training; and have held a full-time faculty appointment as a lecturer, instructor, assistant professor, or equivalent for no more than five years beyond their initial faculty appointment. The appointment must be in a department of radiology, nuclear medicine, or associated department in the radiologic sciences of a medical school teaching hospital in the United States or Canada.
