International travel stipend program

We want to help RSNA members in low- to middle-resource countries travel to the RSNA annual meeting at a reduced cost. Learn about the International Travel Stipend Program below. 

About the program

RSNA members can improve local health care with the knowledge and experience they gain at our annual meeting. We know there can be significant costs associated with traveling to Chicago — that's why we created the International Travel Stipend Program.

This needs-based award provides eligible members from low- to middle-income countries with financial support to travel to the RSNA annual meeting. 

Up to 25 awards of $1,000 each and free standard registration to the annual meeting are available. Preference will be given to first-time applicants.


We are not accepting applications at this time.
