SIR and SIR Foundation believe in promoting a culture of inclusion and strengthening the specialty of interventional radiology (IR) through different perspectives.
The Allied Scientist Training Grant is designed to provide support to trainees enrolled in graduate-level training programs that are outside the clinical realm of interventional radiology but are still considered crucial to the future of IR. The goal is to create a collaborative research training environment that benefits from the unique perspectives of established scientists and interventional radiologists.

How to apply
Applications are currently being accepted.

The Pre-Review application deadline is Sept. 20, 2022.
