Urology Care Foundation Grant Programs
The American Urological Association (AUA) and the Urology Care Foundation are committed to supporting urologic research through funding, advocacy and scholarly exchange. Through our Research Scholars Program and other funding awards, the AUA and the Urology Care Foundation have been providing support to urology researchers for more than 35 years.
These awards are important to innovative urologic research because they provide an opportunity for young scientists to begin a strong career in urologic research excellence at a time when many urology departments across the country are faced with budget challenges that limit quality research opportunities. Many of our scholars remain active in academic urology today, continuing to build upon the foundation of experience and knowledge gained during their research fellowships.

2015 Research Scholars Program Competition - New Funding Opportunities!
The competition is now open for the 2015 Urology Care Foundation Research Scholars Program, and the AUA is proud to announce that the program recently established four new endowments! The AUA Western Section and the Society for Urologic Oncology (SUO) each established second endowment funds. The Indian American Urological Association (IAUA) established two funds to support the Sakti Das, MD Research Scholar Award and the Kalish Kedia, MD Research Scholar Award.
There will be at least 14 funding opportunities available, including four awards (three 2-year awards and one 1-year award) that are available for research in neurotoxins and other areas related to neurourological conditions of the bladder. These awards are made possible through the generous support of The Allergan Foundation. The AUA Mid-Atlantic Section, South Central Section, Western Section, and the Southeastern Sections will also sponsor 2015 Research Scholars. The Joseph Segura Scholarship in Endourology and Stone Management is available in 2015 to domestic and international investigators preforming basic, translational or clinical research in urolithiasis, endourology, and stone management. As mentioned above, new awards for 2015 will include two inaugural SUO Research Scholar Awards in Urologic Oncology, and two inaugural awards supported by the Sakti Das, MD Research Scholar Award and the Kalish Kedia, MD Research Scholar Award. The Urology Care Foundation will also offer an unrestricted one- or two- year award in urology research.
The application deadline is September 4, 2014. A letter of intent is encouraged, but not required and is due on July 18, 2014.
