The Research and Education Foundation of the Society for Pediatric Radiology annually offers funds to foster research and education in pediatric radiology. The deadline is March 15 each year. The purpose of the Research Fellow award is to provide young investigators not yet professionally established in the radiologic sciences an opportunity to gain further insight into scientific investigation and to develop competence in research techniques and methods.
This grant can be used to fund protected time for a one or two-year fellowship, or as a transition-to-faculty award to buy additional protected time within the first five years of faculty appointment. This award requires the naming of an official Mentor in the department.
Amount: $30,000 salary support for one year. Application for renewal for a second year of salary support will be considered based on progress toward the stated goals during the initial year.
Beginning in 2011, SPR grants were applied for using the Common Application through the IORC website: www.radresearch.org. This site has now been suspended and is closed.
