Education & Research Fund

What is the AAPM Education and Research Fund?

Education & Research Fund Annual Report Cover ImageEstablished in 1990, our Education and Research (E&R) Fund supports our vital medical physics profession by funding strategic research and education programs and awards. In 2021, it funded approximately $435,000 in research seed grants, mentorship programs, travel grants, PhD student fellowships, distinguished lectureships, and travel and tuition awards. Also, it supported undergraduate fellowships, which attract outstanding students and promote diversity in our field. For more detail, view the 2021 Education & Research Fund Annual Report.

E&R Fund revenues come from donations by members, local chapters, and sister organizations, and from AAPM's operations budget. Member gifts are the most essential, and in 2021 donations totaled $116,624, bringing the end-of-year balance in our E&R Fund to nearly $3.28 million; this generates a portion of the revenue currently used for E&R funded awards. Your contributions are essential to ensuring the maintenance AND growth of our E&R funded awards in future years.
