American Society of Pediatric Otolaryngology (ASPO) Mentoring Program for the 2014 CORE Grants Cycle

The members of the ASPO research committee have compiled a list of mentors willing to pre-review ASPO grant submissions. The role of the mentor may range from reviewing the general aims of a project, providing advice on feasibility or collaborators to actually reviewing the entire grant. 

The use of this service is entirely voluntary and the mentors will have no role in scoring these grants or determining funding. The ASPO research committee and CORE reviewers will not be mentors for any applicants. 

If any residents, fellows or faculty would be interested in using this service, the applicant should email their name, and abstract to Dr. Albert Park, A mentor will contact the applicant soon thereafter. Questions should be sent to
