Luther Brady Educational Grants

The American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO) Resident Committee is acutely aware of the benefit that monetary support for small projects can provide.  Given that educational projects can be particularly hard to fund through standard research mechanisms, the Resident Committee provides four  educational grants annually to fund small but worthwhile projects.

Grant Details

ACRO will provide four $1,000 grants for radiation oncology residents.  Of the $1,000 that is awarded, $500 will be appropriated towards funding the research project, and $500 will be awarded three months later in a second installment for the project, or can be used to travel to the subsequent ACRO annual meeting.  Recipients must either present at the ACRO Annual Meeting or submit an interim report to the Resident Committee by the time of the meeting. Award recipients are strongly encouraged to submit their project for presentation at the ACRO Annual Meeting.


Applicants must be members of ACRO and in good standing in a US residency program.  Applicants must list a primary mentor for their project.
All submissions must include the following:
Application Form
Applicant’s Curriculum Vitae
Program Director Acknowledgement Form
Letter of Support from the Project Mentor
