The MSRT Scholarships and Grants were established in 1976. This is the 42nd Anniversary of the program. The program has assisted more than 240 students with in excess of $125,000.00.
The maintenance of this program has been through the Annual Scholarship Golf Outing, donations from members, conference speaker’s fees returned, Student Board Reviews, and Advanced Radiology Service’s Memorial donation. The ARS donation is in memory of Ellen VanOss, Rodney Smith and Rebecca Haney, radiographers who worked at Spectrum Health.

The MSRT Scholarships are supported through a number of endeavors. The day prior to the start of the MSRT Annual Meeting a Scholarship Golf Outing is held to raise money. We are also indebted to a number of generous donors who annually provide funds to assist with awarding students these scholarships. We are grateful for the involvement of so many in providing students with financial assistance to help them meet their educational goals.
Advanced Radiology Services, PC, a group of radiologists has also provided funding to the MSRT for two memorial scholarships that are awarded each year; they are the Rodney Smith and Ellen VanOss Scholarships. Both were outstanding radiographers at Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids.
Rodney Smith left this earth in the fall of 2011 at the age of 22. He died from accidental injuries doing what he loved, hunting. He loved challenges and had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, always pushing the technologists and radiologists for answers to complex questions.
Ellen VanOss lived life to the fullest. Her presence would light up the room. She had a ready smile, memorable laughter and a caring nature. Ellen continued to have a spunky flair while meeting her life’s greatest challenge, breast cancer. On Friday, July 20, 2012, at the age of 33, Ellen won the race and is now victorious in heaven receiving her reward.
