Toledo resident awarded Owens scholarship


The American Society of Radiologic Technologists Foundation has awarded Owens Community College student and Toledo resident Jennifer Chaput the Jerman-Cahoon Student Scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year.

The $2,500 scholarship will help Ms. Chaput complete an associates of applied science in radiologic technology educational program. This scholarship was created in honor of Edward Jerman and John Cahoon and is made possible by support from ASRT Foundation Patrons and a grant from the American Society of Radiologic Technologists.

“We are happy to provide Jennifer with financial support to get the tools she needs to further her education and career,” said Phelosha Collaros, ASRT Foundation’s director. “The scholarship is a testament to the commitment and collaborative spirit of the radiologic technology community.”

To be eligible, applicants must be entry-level students enrolled in an accredited radiography, sonography, magnetic resonance, or nuclear medicine program.

Scholarship recipients submitted applications and were selected based on evidence of commitment, leadership, achievement, and financial need. The Foundation’s Scholarship Review Committee evaluated scholarship applications and provided recommendations to the board of trustees. The board then approved recipients.
