The first new grant is a hardship award of $160 to support sonographers who are temporarily disabled or unemployed and experiencing financial hardship that prevents them from renewing their SDMS membership. The second is a research grant ranging from $2,500 to $5,000 to support researchers who propose a "unique and pressing research topic" to the SDMS Foundation.
The grants already in place range from $250 to $1,000 to provide financial assistance for attendance at the SDMS annual conference, to help sonographers with additional certifications, and to support those working in international healthcare.
The society's scholarships are $2,500 and support sonography students accepted or enrolled in an accredited program, as well as students pursuing an advanced degree.
