Home  /  Scholarships  /  CSS Scholarships

The ASET Foundation’s CSS (Company Sponsored Scholarship) program encourages neurodiagnostic technologists’ pursuit of continuing education and professional development through vendor funding of scholarships for ASET members to attend the ASET annual conferences. The value of CSS Scholarships is set by the participating vendors. At a minimum, the scholarships will cover the cost of full registration to the annual conference. Some CSS scholarships also may provide funding to help offset cost of travel to the event.

Candidates must be a member of ASET for at least one year prior to the year of making application. (Students with less than a year’s membership in ASET are eligible to apply for CSS student scholarships if they became a member of ASET at the time they enrolled in a neurodiagnostic training program.) Companies place additional parameters on who is eligible to apply for their sponsored scholarships. The ASET Foundation Board of Directors is responsible for receiving and reviewing all CSS Scholarship applications as well as selection of recipients. All applications will be evaluated based on financial need; financial contribution of the employer; educational growth expected as a result of attending the conference; need for skill enhancement as defined by change in employment, lab expansion, or job promotion; and, if applicable, need to sit for board exams or earn continuing education credit to maintain current registry. Individuals are not eligible for a CSS Scholarship if they have received funding from the ASET Foundation within two years prior to making application.
