Urology Care Foundation Award Competitions Now Open for Urologic Research

The Urology Care Foundation is pleased to announce that the competitions are now open for Rising Stars in Urology Research Awards and Research Scholar Awards! Applications are due in early September.

These award programs provide support to urologic researchers who are working to improve the lives of patients. Their efforts help build cutting-edge research that leads to better treatments for urologic problems.

The Research Scholar Program is the Urology Care Foundation's oldest and largest program. These one- and two- year grants for MD and PhD researchers support training in all urologic disease areas and across all research types.

The Rising Stars in Urology Research Awards give salary support to practicing urologists who are committed to research. This support allows them to work as surgical specialists while ensuring that they have time to research causes, treatments, and cures that will help the patients they serve.

Celebrating 40 years of supporting research, the AUA and Urology Care Foundation with your help have supported over 650 scholars and invested nearly $24 million in research scholarships and awards!
