Research Scholar Awards

The AUA offers a portfolio of mentored research training awards to recruit outstanding young investigators into urologic research and foster their career success.

The Research Scholar Program, our premier funding opportunity, provides $40,000 per year for one- and two-year mentored training for:

  • Clinical and postdoctoral fellows who are no more than five years beyond completing a doctorate or residency
  • Early career investigators who are in the first five years after beginning a faculty position

The 2023 competition is closed. Information for the 2024 competition will be posted this summer. Please contact with any questions.
