The ACR now offers a travel scholarship for graduate students in medical physics to attend the ACR annual meeting in Washington, DC.
Medical Physics Travel Scholarship
The College will grant one scholarship annually to bring a medical physics graduate student to Washington, DC. The scholarship covers four night’s hotel accommodation, travel (airfare/train), and a stipend to cover meals (when meals are not provided at the meeting).
Applicants will be required to tell us in two minutes or less why they want to attend the ACR Annual Meeting (via private YouTube link recorded with phone camera-side down, or audio file). In order to be effective members of the medical community, medical physicists should be able to communicate the value and relevance of their work to healthcare professionals outside of medical physics. To this end, applicants will also be required to summarize their graduate research in 500 words or less. The summary should be easily understood by readers with no background knowledge; submissions will be judged on both content and comprehensibility.
Top submissions may be featured in the ACR Bulletin.
