Dr. Paul E. Berger, founder and CEO of NightHawk Radiology Services, has donated $1.5 million to the RSNA's Research and Education Foundation to endow the Derek Harwood-Nash Scholar Grant. The fellowship program will help young academic radiologists from outside the U.S. travel to North America for advanced research training.

The endowment is a personal tribute to the late Harwood-Nash, who was born in the former British colony of Southern Rhodesia in 1936 and trained in South Africa, England, and Canada before conducting pioneering work that led to the subspecialty of pediatric neuroradiology. He died in Toronto in 1997
