Here is the latest information for the AUA sections regarding the Urology Care Foundation grant programs. We are pleased to announce that we are extending the deadline for the 2014 Urology Care Foundation Research Scholars Program. The deadline is now Monday, September 2nd, 2013.
The Urology Care Foundation is accepting applications across all areas of urology for this program. The oldest and most prolific funding program of the Urology Care Foundation, the Research Scholars program has supported more than 525 MDs and PhDs in 1- or 2-year research fellowships. Many remain in academic urology today, continuing to build upon the base of experience and knowledge gained during their research fellowships. One- and two-year awards are available for eligible MD and PhD researchers interested in pursuing careers in urologic research. Recipients receive $40,000 annually and the sponsoring institution provides matching funds.
There are currently at least 12 awards available for 2014 fellowships. Among those we have specifically targeted funding for three areas: neurourology, prostate cancer, and kidney cancer. The Allergan Foundation has provided funding for two, two-year awards for research in neurotoxins or areas associated with neurourology. The Robert J. Krane, MD Research Scholar Fund provides support for a one-year award for research on erectile dysfunction, prostate cancer or male incontinence. The Kidney Cancer Association provides support for a one-year fellowship in areas related to kidney cancer.
The deadline for application submission is Monday, September 2nd, 2013. Applicants do not need to submit a Letter of Intent. For details on the Research Scholars Program and other Foundation grant programs, visit: http://www.auanet.org/research/research-scholar-awards-83.cfm.
