This scholarship is awarded every other year and will next be awarded in Spring 2016.
The purpose of the ARRS/ASNR Scholarship is to establish the recipient as an independent investigator in the field of neuroradiology and to collect preliminary data that could lead to further funding through established mechanisms such as the NIH. The scholarship program is open to junior full time faculty members (below the associate professor level) specializing in neuroradiology. Applications will be accepted in any area of research related to brain, spine and head and neck imaging. Applications should describe the unique nature of the research effort independent of existing research efforts, and should have well-defined goals for the funding period of the grant. Greater emphasis on the independent nature of the research will be stressed compared to resident/fellowship efforts.
The ARRS Research Subcommittee in conjunction with members of The Foundation of the ASNR will select one scholar each year to participate in a two-year program. The scholarship will provide $150,000 ($75,000 per year); it requires a minimum 50 percent time commitment.
Selection of the ARRS/ASNR scholar will be based on:
Acceptance of one of the following grant awards precludes any eligibility to accept any of the other grant awards during the same or subsequent years: ARRS Scholar Award, ASNR Research Awards, AUR GE-Radiology Research Academic Fellowship (GERRAF), RSNA Research Grant.
The deadline for receipt of applications is November 23, 2015.
Interviews will be held in early spring 2016.
Applicants must submit the following materials. The entire application should not exceed 20 pages. The candidates will submit the required documents as e-mail attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Termination of scholarship: Circumstances may arise in which the institution or the ARRS scholar may wish to bring the grant to an end before the completion of the study. This may be arranged at any time by agreement between the sponsoring department of radiology, the scholar, and ARRS. Termination will be made with the understanding that all unexpended funds will be returned to the ARRS and that all unpaid balances of the scholarship will be canceled.
Transfer of scholarship: Requests for transfer of scholarships from one institution to another will be considered individually on their merits by the ARRS Research Subcommittee and special members appointed to implement the scholarships.
