Strategic Alignment Grant

The purpose of the AUR Research and Education Foundation Strategic Alignment Grant (SAG) is to advance the long-range strategic organizational goals of the AUR by awarding one year length grant(s) to applicants who address identified strategic priorities.

Application Process
Proposals that are aligned with any of the AUR strategic priorities are encouraged. Additionally, the AUR Research and Education Foundation has identified the following focus areas for the 2023‐24 grant.

  • Develop programs and strategies that can mitigate or prevent burn out in academic radiology.
  • Conduct research that advances our understanding of dissemination of new or existing AUR branded educational or research content to audience beyond national AUR membership (e.g., strategies that facilitate dissemination of the materials to other radiology societies or international AUR members)
  • Develop formal mentorship or sponsorship curriculum and benchmarks.
  • Develop virtual and live education programs dedicated to trainees and faculty.
We require the grantee to present their work at the AUR Annual meeting. (Please note report deadlines and reference these requirements in conjunction with programming and scheduling of the AUR Annual Meeting).

Application Deadline: The letter of intent must be completed and submitted electronically as a PDF file by 12:00 pm Central Time on October 15, 2022. Applicants will be invited to submit a proposal by November 18, 2022 based on their letter of intent.

Amount: 
One or more grants, up to $20,000 (USD) in aggregate will be awarded for the 2023‐2024 year. Funds may or may not be granted, depending on the quality of the received proposals. The maximum individual award may not exceed $10,000 for a one year project.
  • The award may be used for project costs and/or salary support of study personnel. Funds may not be used toward salary support for the primary investigator or to support non grant related affinity group or association costs. The grant will not fund institutional indirect costs or overhead costs, or tuition.
  • Travel expenses for the AUR Annual Meeting may not be paid by this grant’s funds.
  • Unexpended funds must be returned to the AUR Research and Education Foundation.
The award can be renewed at no cost for a second year by request and upon approval of the AUR Research and Education Foundation. If additional funding is requested for the second year, a full application should be submitted which will undergo a formal review process.
