WOF Grant Recipients

Resident Research Grants through OREF

WOF will fund up to three grant proposals per year to select residents whose submissions have been reviewed by an OREF panel of experts. Upon completion of their research, each of the residents will present their findings in a podium paper at the WOA Annual Meeting.
