Multiple Applications from One Institution
The Urology Care Foundation strongly prefers not to fund multiple applications from the same research or educational institution during any single award cycle. However, if circumstances arise where no other option is available, the Foundation may consider funding more than one proposal from the same institution.
Project Termination and Change of Institution
Any personnel or location changes that occur after the award announcement or during the award period must be reported to and approved 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 Urology Care Foundation Residency Research Award.
Certification of Human Subjects
If activities involving human subjects are planned during the proposed research, the applicant must provide a letter of approval from the local Institutional Review Board (IRB). IRB letters of approval are not required at the time of application submission.
