Resident Seed Grant

The Resident Committee of the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO) is acutely aware of the benefit that monetary support for small projects can provide. Given the increased difficulty in obtaining funding, the Resident Committee provides 2 seed grants annually to fund small but worthwhile projects.
