Call for Applications: Association for Radiologic and Imaging Nursing Helen Malenock Award
The Association for Radiologic and Imaging Nursing (ARIN) was founded in 1981 as the professional organization representing nurses who practice in diagnostic and therapeutic imaging environments. These nurses provide, promote, and maintain continuity of quality patient care to imaging environments such as general diagnostic, neuro/cardiovascular, interventional, ultrasonography, computerized tomography, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance, and radiation oncology.
The Helen Malenock Award was established by ARIN to provide financial assistance to a radiological nurse who is interested in becoming a member of ARIN. The recipient will receive a complimentary one year membership in ARIN.
Call for Applications: Association for Radiologic and Imaging Nursing Dorothy Budnek Memorial Scholarship
The Association for Radiologic and Imaging Nursing (ARIN) Dorothy Budnek Memorial Scholarship was established to provide financial assistance to ARIN members who have returned to school to advance their nursing education. The recipient will receive a scholarship in the amount of $600.00. Individuals who have been members of ARIN for at least three years are eligible to apply for the Dorothy Budnek Memorial Scholarship.
Dorothy (Dot) Budnek began her career as a Radiologic Technologist. Dot strongly believed in the importance of the nurse’s role in radiology and returned to the University of South Carolina to pursue her BSN degree. She faithfully supported ARIN and attended classes at USC throughout her battle with breast cancer. In the memory of Dot, a faithful ARIN member and nursing education advocate, ARIN is proud to award a scholarship to a radiology nurse who is continuing his/her education.

Call for Applications: Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute Cost-Effectiveness and Quality Outcomes Research Grant
Application Deadline: June 1, 2014
The Cost-Effectiveness and Quality Outcomes Research Grant is designed to fund research evaluating the cost, cost-effectiveness, and quality and outcomes of interventional radiology interventions and treatment approaches in comparison to other established and emerging treatments. These grants should emphasize observational studies and secondary data analyses evaluating the use of image guided minimally invasive therapies in real-world settings. The research from these studies would provide health care providers, patients, health insurers, and policy makers with additional information upon which to base decisions concerning the incorporation of these procedures into an integrated healthcare system.
Examples of the types of projects this initiative could support but is not limited to include cost modeling studies, decision analyses, case-control studies, retrospective observational studies or secondary analyses of existing data. Prospective clinical trials and prospective hypothesis driven research would not be supported by this announcement.
Applicants should propose research that advances the field of interventional radiology and evaluates the cost, cost-effectiveness, and quality outcomes of IR interventions. Collaborations with field experts such as health economists, data analysts, population epidemiologists or other experts as appropriate for specific projects are encouraged. High quality applications that address this solicitation will be given special consideration. This is a high priority mechanism
and proposals that describe short time-lines for completion of the study and dissemination of results will be preferred.
Grant funding of up to $30,000 will be made for cost, cost-effectiveness and/or quality outcomes studies.
Association of University Radiologists GE Radiology Research Academic Fellowship (GERRAF) Award
Fostering scholarship in radiology research
Since their inauguration in 1992, AUR GERRAF fellowships have been one of the most sought-after awards in academic radiology. Already, they have helped dozens of academic radiologists through:
■ Strengthening the research interest of radiologist-investigators by broadening their opportunities for continuing scholarship
■ Fostering original clinical and health services research in technology assessment, health and economic outcome methods, and decision analysis
If you are interested in a radiology research career and currently hold a junior faculty appointment in an academic radiology training institution in the U.S. or Canada, you may be eligible to apply for a GERRAF Award.
