Scholarship Description

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: (1) Clinical and postdoctoral fellows who are no more than five years beyond completing a doctorate or residency; (2) Early career investigators who are in the first five years after beginning a faculty position.

Research Scholar Awards require cost-sharing from the sponsoring institution. For MD (or equivalent degree) applicants, cost-sharing is required as matching funding ($40,000 per year) to aid in protecting research time and ensure the provision of a strong scientific environment, laboratory equipment, and supplies to conduct the research. For PhD (or equivalent degree) applicants, cost-sharing to support the salary/stipend for the trainee, supplies and equipment to conduct the research, or other direct costs to appropriately support the trainee is required.

If the research is being conducted in the United States, applicants are not required to be U.S. citizens but must have valid Social Security numbers for Internal Revenue Service purposes.
