The ASET Foundation offers tuition grants to assist and encourage qualified students to further or continue their interest in selecting the allied health field of neurodiagnostic technology as a new or continued career. Any student who will be or is currently enrolled full-time in a CAAHEP accredited neurodiagnostic program is eligible to apply for a tuition grant. In addition, persons who are already employed in the neurodiagnostic profession may also apply for a grant to attend a 2-year junior college or a 4-year college to pursue their degree.
The number of tuition grants and the dollar amount for each is determined annually by the ASET Foundation Board of Directors. Typically, tuition grants range in value from $500 to $1,000.
Applications for tuition grants must be completed and returned to the Foundation no later than June 1 for the coming school year. Copies of the applicant’s academic transcripts (if applicable) and all letters of recommendation and references also must be received by the Foundation by June 1st.
The selection of grant recipients will be determined by the ASET Foundation Board of Directors, taking into consideration the following criteria:
- The applicant’s indication of interest in pursuing a career in the neurodiagnostic profession
- The applicant’s record of scholastic achievement, including grade point average
- The applicant’s indication of interest in pursuing a degree in order to serve as future faculty for the neurodiagnostic profession
- The applicant’s references and recommendations by instructors, employers and other pertinent individuals
Grant recipients will be determined without regard to race, religion, color, gender, disability, national origin, ancestry or age. Individuals who are members of ASET are given priority when grants are determined.
Grant winners are typically notified within 30 days of the application filing deadline. Once the determination has been made that the tuition grant recipient is duly registered at the institution noted on the application, a check will then be issued in the name of the student and mailed directly to the registrar’s or financial aid office.
