Urology Care Foundation Funded Research

The American Urological Association (AUA) is committed to supporting urologic research through funding, advocacy and scholarly exchange. Through our Research Scholars Program and other funding awards, the AUA and Urology Care Foundation have been providing support to young 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.

Research Scholar Awards

Since 1975, the American Urological Association (AUA) has funded research opportunities for and provided support to young men and women who are interested in pursuing careers in urologic research. The Research Scholars Program, initially administered by the American Foundation for Urologic Disease, Inc. (AFUD) from 1987 until 2005, has given assistance to more than 525 early career researchers. Now part of the Urology Care Foundation, the Research Scholars Program continues to thrive, promoting urologic advances through the many program participants who have remained active in academic urology today. These innovative researchers continue to build upon the base of experience and knowledge gained during their research fellowships and contribute to building the field of knowledge in urology research that will lead to new treatments and cures.
