In my last blog, I wrote about my favourite teacher at FMCC, Assistant Professor Karlyn LaBate.
Well, it turns out that last month Karlyn nominated me for the Radiologists without Borders (RWB) student scholarship. I won the scholarship, which is worth $1,000, so I’m very grateful!
The scholarship is awarded to an international student studying radiologic technology.
Dr Tariq Gill is the founder of RWB. Their mission is to bring lifesaving diagnostic imaging solutions to medically underserved populations worldwide.
Loyal, compassionate, and motivated students make up a large support base for RWB and the communities served.
For consideration for the scholarship, I submitted an essay detailing my passion for pursuing an education in the imaging sciences. I wrote about how my ultimate goal would be to serve RWB as a technologist, travelling internationally to teach and train new radiology students.
Scholarships are available for international students in the US and there are no set rules on how to apply for them.
While some may just require a student to complete an application form, others may require a high GPA, a written essay, or the pursuit of studies in a certain field (as with RWB).
If you have a financial need and you find a scholarship you think you may be eligible for, contact the award administrator or your college international students director.
You can also check out InternationalStudent.com for more scholarships you could be eligible for.
Happy searching, happy holidays!
