The American Society of Radiologic Technologists Education and Research Foundation has awarded four scholarships, worth $5,000 each, through the Monster Medical Imaging Educators Scholarship Program. The scholarship program, supported by the online careers and recruitment resource, Monster, assists educators who are pursuing their bachelor’s or an advanced degree to enhance their position as a program director, faculty member, clinical coordinator or clinical instructor.
“The Monster Medical Imaging Educators Scholarship Program helps ensure there will be an adequate number of educators to teach radiologic technologist students in universities and colleges throughout the nation,” said Sayra Chorey, Monster’s senior marketing manager, health care. “By providing this scholarship in collaboration with the Foundation, we’re helping mitigate the current healthcare shortage by working to ensure talented medical imaging educators are in place to train those entering the field.”
