SIR and SIR Foundation believe in promoting a culture of inclusion and strengthening the specialty of interventional radiology (IR) through different perspectives.
The Dr. Ernest J. Ring Academic Development Grant program is designed to provide support to junior interventional radiology faculty members early in their academic careers to allow time for the conduct of research. The goal of this grant is to have the recipient subsequently obtain additional funding from other peer-reviewed sources, (e.g., National Institutes of Health [NIH] grants).
How to apply
Applications are currently being accepted.
The Dr. Ernest J. Ring Academic Development Grant highly encourages participation in the Proposal Development Form and Pre-Review process, which is located in the grant application. This allows for grant applicants to receive preliminary feedback on their applications, from an assigned reviewer/mentor, prior to submitting their final applications for funding consideration. Although this requirement is designed to provide feedback prior to the final decision, completion of the Proposal Development Form and Pre-Review process does not guarantee funding.
The Proposal Development Form deadline is June 30, 2023.
The Pre-Review application deadline is Sept. 20, 2023.
Final applications are due on Jan. 15, 2024, by 5 p.m. ET. This deadline remains whether or not the date falls on a weekend or holiday. Applications that are not complete or do not comply with the guidelines will be considered ineligible.
Please read our guidelines for more information about eligibility and application requirements.
