General Application Instructions
All applicants for the Urology Care Foundation Research Scholars Award Program must register online where they can:
Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. All materials listed on the checklist must be included in order to be reviewed and considered for funding.
Multiple Applications from One Institution
The Urology Care Foundation will make every effort not to fund more than one Scholar at the same research or educational institution if they are in the same fellowship class. However, cases may exist where funding is restricted by the sponsor and there is no other option available.
Project Termination and Change of Institution
Any personnel or location changes that occur after the award announcement or during the course of the fellowship must be reported to and approved by the Urology Care Foundation. Unexpended funds in terminated projects will revert to the Urology Care Foundation. Scholarship support will terminate on the date the Mentor or Scholar ceases to work at the research institution, unless advanced permission for transfer has been authorized by the Urology Care Foundation.
The Urology Care Foundation does not discriminate as to age, race, color, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability, citizenship or national origin in the employment and promotion of staff or in the selection of participants in the Research Scholars Program.
Certification of Human Subjects
If activities involving human subjects are planned during the proposed research, a Letter of Approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB) must be provided. Letters of Approval are not required at the time of application. If you receive a Urology Care Foundation award, your award is contingent upon receipt by the Urology Care Foundation of a copy of the current IRB approval letter
Certification of Vertebrate Animals
If activities involving vertebrate animals are planned during the research, a Letter of Approval by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) must be submitted. Letters of Approval are not required at the time of application. If you receive a Urology Care Foundation award, your award is contingent upon receipt by the Urology Care Foundation of a copy of the current IACUC approval letter.
