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
The Dr. Ernest J. Ring Academic Development Grant requires participation in the Proposal Development Form, which is located in the grant application. The Proposal Development Form provides an opportunity for 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 does not guarantee funding. The Proposal Development Form must be submitted by June 30, 2021.
Final applications are due Jan. 15, 2022, 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.
