Stanford Radiology Diversity Initiative
for Equal Technology Access

The Department of Radiology is proud to announce a new initiative to provide resources for trainees who face financial and technological constraints that impair their ability to conduct research work from home. Stanford undergraduate students, Stanford graduate students and Stanford funded postdoctoral fellows who are conducting research work under supervision of a Stanford Radiology faculty and who do not have adequate computer access from their home can apply for a Stanford Radiology funded Mac laptop. This solicitation is not for visiting researchers and not for clinical Radiology trainees who are already receiving technical support through their clinical divisions. We ask everyone to be mindful of applying only in case of a true financial hardship. This initiative should support our team members who are not able to attain computer support through any other means with the goal to provide equal technology access for everyone in our community. The laptops will belong to and will eventually be returned to Stanford after the trainee completed their research at Stanford Radiology.

Eligible candidates should submit a one-page proposal with:

  1. heading: Diversity initiative for equal technology access
  2. trainee name, trainee title, home address and email
  3. supervisor’s name, Stanford Radiology division, email
  4. brief summary of trainee’s Radiology research work
  5. explanation of hardship and justification of new laptop need

Proposals should be submitted per email to Meke Faaoso ( and Dr. Heike Daldrup-Link ( by 4/21/2020 at 5 pm. Proposals will be reviewed and ranked by the Stanford Radiology diversity committee and a list of finalists will be forwarded to Dr. Garry Gold and Stanford Radiology leadership for review and approval. Laptops will be purchased through the Stanford bookstore and shipped to successful applicants in late April/ early May. We aim for quick turnaround in order to maximize the benefits to our trainees during the COVID-19 pandemic.
