SIR Resident-in-Training Travel Scholarship (Deadline: October 1, 2015)
Who Can Apply: This program is open to all first- and second-year radiology residents within the United States. The scholarship will provide recipients with complimentary meeting registration, funding for travel (up to $500) and a $500 travel stipend that will be awarded after submission of a post meeting essay.
Scholarship recipients should plan to attend the 2016 meeting for the IR-in-training educational track which takes place from Sunday, April 3 through Tuesday, April 5, 2016. They will attend the dedicated IR-in-training track, SIR 2016 plenaries and workshops and participate in networking events. Scheduled events will include the RIT Scholarship dinner symposium, where some of IR’s most influential leaders will highlight emerging therapies and issues in the specialty. Scholars are welcome to attend sessions outside of the IR-in-training track.
