Grant Writing Workshop
Developing competitive grant funding proposals is critical for a successful and rewarding career in radiation oncology research to discover scientific insights and novel approaches to advance medicine. By participating attendees will learn strategies for writing a competitive grant proposal, what happens during proposal review through watching a Mock Review Session, and gain tips from funded ASTRO members in various fields.
Participants can also receive feedback on draft proposal aims through a one-on-one consultation session with our funded faculty. (A consultation reservation form will be distributed to all registered attendees in October, 2020. Register early; availability might be limited.)
