    Dr. Luther Brady ACRO Resident Educational Grant

    Dr. Luther Brady served as an innovator and educator in the field of radiation oncology for over 50 years. In the spirit of his legacy, The American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO) Resident Committee is offering a funding opportunity to resident members of ACRO in order to enhance education and the educational environment for radiation oncology residents. The committee is acutely aware of the benefit that monetary support for small projects can provide. Therefore, the committee will offer funds to support 4 educational projects, which are traditionally difficult to fund through standard research mechanisms.

    Scholarship Details

    • ACRO will provide four $1,000 grants for education-related 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.
