Travel Scholarship

The College is proud to offer travel scholarships to medical students enrolled in U.S. or Canadian approved programs in order to support attendance at the ACR annual meeting.

Up to ten scholarships will be offered to allow medical students to travel to ACR 2020, the College’s annual meeting, in Washington, D.C. on May 16-20, 2020. Each scholarship will cover lodging, travel, a stipend to cover meals (when meals are not provided at the meeting) and incidentals (refer to travel policy for complete details).

Goal of scholarship:


  • Improve diversity and inclusion within radiology.
  • Improve the recognition and value of ACR membership.
  • Increase understanding of the impact of ACR research in expanding the purview of medical imaging, interventional radiology, and radiation oncology practice for the benefit of patients.
  • Increase understanding of the importance of radiology as a critical component of patient care.

Recipient requirements:


  • Awardees must register for ACR 2020 and attend pre-determined activities on May 16 and 17 (Saturday and Sunday, to include the RFS program).
  • Awardees will participate in the meeting mentor program, complete pre- and post-conference surveys and provide a post-meeting write-up on their experience; content from the post-meeting write-ups may be used in ACR publications and marketing materials. 
  • Submit a W-9 form, comply with the ACR travel policy for this scholarship and submit copies of receipts by June 16, 2020.
