Limited Submission Announcement

The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) Scholarship gives both recognition and financial support to the activities and studies of young investigators, educators, and administrators in order to help prepare them for positions of leadership in academic radiology. This purpose is in accordance with the definition of scholar as one who attends a school or studies under a teacher. The ARRS scholarship may be used for study outside the parent institution.

4. Certification by the American Board of Radiology or equivalent.
5. Letter of nomination by the department chair, including a commitment of a minimum of 80 percent of the candidate's time to the scholarship program for a one-year program, or minimum of 50 percent of the candidate's time for a two-year program.
