Association of University Radiologists GE Radiology Research Academic Fellowship (GERRAF) Award
Fostering scholarship in radiology research
Application deadline: January 17, 2014
Since their inauguration in 1992, AUR GERRAF fellowships have been one of the most sought-after awards in academic radiology. Already, they have helped dozens of academic radiologists through:
Strengthening the research interest of radiologist-investigators by broadening their opportunities for continuing scholarship
Fostering original clinical and health services research in technology assessment, health and economic outcome methods, and decision analysis
The GERRAF Award provides two-year fellowships of sufficient flexibility to meet current research training
programs and clinical faculty appointments.
The GERRAF Award is $70,000 (USD) for each of two years and is paid through the sponsoring institution (as specified on the application form), to be used primarily for salary support for the Fellow. Up to $10,000 of the
stipend each year may be used by the Fellow to secure assistance in executing the project. An additional $10,000
of the stipend can to be used for coursework in an MPH or other degree program approved by the GERRAF Board of Review over the two year fellowship. Otherwise, the entire amount is to be used exclusively for the fellow’s salary support. In return, the institution must make available not less than one-half of the Fellow’s time to pursue the approved research and educational program.
The total salary may be supplemented by funds from other sources to meet the current pay scale of the sponsoring
institution. The sponsoring institution is expected to develop plans for continuing the Fellow’s appointment and
research salary support beyond the award period.
The annual Fellowship term begins on July 1 and ends on June 30.
An important component of this Fellowship is the commitment of the sponsoring department and institution to make available formal educational programs, research opportunities, and in-kind support for the further development of GERRAF Fellows.
(NOTE: GERRAF Awards are given to the institutions, not the individuals. As a fellowship stipend, this award may
not be used to fund institutional overhead [indirect] costs.)
If you are interested in a radiology research career and currently hold a junior faculty appointment in an academic radiology training institution in the U.S. or Canada, you may be eligible to apply for a GERRAF Award.
