CROF Resident Elective Travel Award

Provided by the Canadian Radiation Oncology Foundation, the CROF Resident Elective Travel Award addresses geographic disparities in the distribution of Radiation Oncology professionals across Canada by helping a senior CARO resident member explore career options in Canadian centres without residency training programs. A $1,000 award for one recipient is available through this scholarship, which is administered by the CARO Education Committee.
