Research Scholar Awards

The Research Scholar Program is the flagship research program of the Urology Care Foundation. It began in 1975 to provide mentored research training awards to early-career investigators, enabling them to ignite their careers and advance urologic research. To date, the program has invested over $24 million to support over 550 Research Scholars, many of whom are now world-renowned leaders in urologic research. We invite MD (or equivalent) and PhD (or equivalent) applicants to apply for funding to support their training in urologic research. Awards are $40,000 per year for one or two years of support and require intensive involvement of one or more mentors committed to advancing the development of the Research Scholar. Most Research Scholar Awards require an institutional match such that the sponsoring institution must provide matching funding, guarantee protected research time, and ensure the adequacy of the scientific environment, laboratory equipment, and supplies to perform the research.
