ASTRO Minority 2017 Sumer Fellowship Award

Applications now being accepted for the 2017 Minority Summer Fellowship Award.      
The goal of the 2017 ASTRO Minority Summer Fellowship Award is to introduce medical students from backgrounds that are under-represented in medicine to the discipline of radiation oncology early in their medical education. Medical students in all years are encouraged to apply, although preference will be given to first- and second-year students. 

Two award winners will be chosen, and they will be introduced to the discipline of radiation oncology and exposed to clinical, basic and translational research questions. Each winner will receive:

A $2,500 stipend for an eight-week training program.
An additional $1,000 upon completion of a final report.
Another $1,000 to be applied toward attendance at the 2018 ASTRO Annual Meeting.

Please help us get the word out about this important opportunity. We have developed a Promotional Poster for you to download and post, or share with colleagues and students.

The application deadline is February 10, 2017. The eligibility requirements and the application form are available here
