The fellowship is awarded for the first two years of graduate study leading to a doctoral degree in Medical Physics (Ph.D. or DMP). Both BSc. and MS holders are eligible to apply. A stipend of $13,000 per year, plus tuition support not exceeding $5,000 per year is assigned to the recipient. The amount of tuition support granted will be at the discretion of AAPM. The award will be paid to the recipient’s institution and distributed in accordance with the institution’s disbursement procedures. It is AAPM’s policy that none of the funds may be diverted to the institution’s “facilities”, “administrative”, or other overhead categories and the full $13,000 stipend must be provided to the recipient.
Each applicant must be a graduate of an undergraduate program in physics or equivalent majors (e.g. engineering-physics, math-physics, or nuclear engineering or applied physics) from an accredited university or college in North America. The undergraduate grade point average must be greater than 3.5 (Based on a 4.0). Each applicant must have submitted an application for graduate study to one of the CAMPEP accredited programs with subsequent acceptance.
