Resident Scholarship Fund


Each year Resident scholarship awards are presented to one outstanding Resident from each of the 20 training facilities in the Western Section geographic boundaries. The award amount varies each year but is currently $1000 except for Hawaii meetings in which case it is $1500.

Recognizing that our younger members are the vitality of our ever-aging organization, we ask your support of our Residents. The funds received go directly to support scholarships and educational programs, empowering our Residents to participate and become leaders in the future of urology. Thank you for any support you wish to donate.
