ACRO Resident Seed Grant for 2020-2021

  • Deadline to submit an application: September 16, 2020 9pm PST


    The Resident Committee of the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO) is offering a funding opportunity for resident members of ACRO. The committee is acutely aware of the benefit that monetary support for small projects can provide. Given the increased difficulty in obtaining funding, the Resident Committee is providing 4 seed grants to fund small but worthwhile projects.

    Scholarship Details

    • ACRO will provide four $1,000 grants for research projects in radiation oncology.
    • Of the $1,000 awarded, $500 will be appropriated towards funding the research project, and $500 will be awarded 3 months later in a second installment for the project or can be used to travel to the ACRO annual meeting (The Radiation Oncology Summit).
    • If the 2021 ACRO Annual Meeting is converted to a virtual meeting, then the remaining $500 can be used for the project.
    • Award recipients will be notified by mid-October, and the first $500 will be awarded within 2 weeks of notification.
    • Recipients must submit an interim report to the Resident Committee by 2/1/21, or submit an abstract to the ACRO Annual Meeting. The final report must be submitted by mid-May.
    • Final acceptance and disbursement of funds is subject to review by the ACRO Resident Committee.
