The AAMI Foundation Scholarship Program

The AAMI Foundation Scholarship Program, which was created in 2009 in honor of past AAMI president Michael J. Miller, provides financial support to students who are pursuing an education in healthcare technology.

Every year, the AAMI Foundation awards scholarships to students aspiring to become biomedical equipment technicians, clinical engineers, and health systems engineers. These scholarships expand access to students who have demonstrated academic excellence, technical aptitude, and a commitment to healthcare technology and patient safety.

Why Do We Need Your Support?

By supporting this program, you are helping students enter and excel in the healthcare technology field. Biomedical equipment technicians and clinical engineers play a vital role in healthcare by working behind the scenes to ensure that medical devices and technology are safe and reliable—and always ready for use in life-saving situations.

At a time of when technology is changing rapidly and the workforce is aging, this scholarship program is vitally important to ensure that healthcare technology continues to be both safe and effective in the future.

How Can You Help?

You can make a difference in the lives of students entering the healthcare technology field by contributing to the AAMI Foundation Scholarship Program at any of the sponsorship levels. Your donation is tax-deductible under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. IRS Tax Code.
