The fellowship is awarded for the first two years of graduate study leading to a doctoral degree in Medical Physics. 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 the 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.
Graduate study must be undertaken in a Medical Physics Doctoral Degree program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs, Inc. (CAMPEP). Additional information on CAMPEP accredited programs can be found at http://www.campep.org.
