2024 ASTRO-AAPM Physics Resident/Post-Doctoral Fellow Seed Grant

AAPM and the American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) are happy to announce a jointly funded research seed grant for Medical Physics Residents and Post-Doctoral Fellows. The goal of the joint seed grant is to advance the field of radiation oncology in novel ways through the support of early-career scientists involved in radiation oncology physics-related research. With this jointly supported grant, both societies aim to help support the next generation of researchers in the field of radiation oncology. Applicants are asked to notify the grant administrator if the same or similar application is submitted to more than one funding source so that the committee can take this into consideration when making final funding decisions. Up to two awards ($25,000 maximum / each) are anticipated. The 2024 award cycle will begin on July 1, 2024 and end on June 20, 2025.

Sponsored by the AAPM Science Council through the AAPM Education & Research Fund and the American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).
