International Travel Scholarship

Each year the ASMIRT is pleased to offer four International Travel Scholarships (ITS) to current members of the ASMIRT. Two Early Career scholarships are offered for $3500 to provisional ASMIRT members, one in diagnostic imaging/nuclear medicine and one in radiation therapy. Two $5000 scholarships are offered to Professional Members, one in diagnostic imaging
/nuclear medicine and one in radiation therapy.

The aim of the scholarship is to assist ASMIRT members to experience medical radiation science on an international stage such as attendance at an international conference,  participation in an international training program or the undertaking of small study tours.  Practitioners are encouraged to share their experiences with their colleagues on their return to Australia. Members who are interested in applying should keep an eye out for details in the July, August and September editions of Spectrum and on the website.  Guidelines and application information will be posted on the website from July each year.
