Osborn Scholarship


Royce R. Osborn, FAHRA, was a generous man and World War II veteran who prevailed over racial prejudice to become a leader in his profession. As one of the first radiologic technologists to make the transition to a new position called “radiology administrator” in the 1970s, he was determined to help others get the management education they needed. Osborn was among the group of charter members who shaped AHRA and, in 1984, was the second recipient to achieve its highest honor, the Gold Award. 

The AHRA Education Foundation’s Royce and Paula Osborn Scholarship was created to honor the commitment Royce and his wife, Paula, made to education and helping others.

Awarded annually, the Osborn Scholarships provide opportunities for AHRA members to participate in the Annual Meeting or Spring Conference.The recipient ​is awarded ​up to $1500 for the Annual Meeting and up to $1200 for the Spring Conference to support travel related expenses. The AHRA Education Foundation will ​also ​pay conference registration fees.

AHRA continually looks for opportunities to offer value-added benefits to honor and assist medical imaging professionals who serve our country. As such, the AHRA Education Foundation Board of Directors approved funding for three additional Osborn scholarship opportunities, specifically for AHRA’s active duty military members.

  • 2018 Spring Conference Deadline – January 29, 2018 (2 scholarship opportunities available - 1 exclusively for military members)
  • 2018 Annual Meeting & Exposition Deadline – June 4, 2018 (5 scholarship opportunities available - 2 exclusively for military members)
