Earl F. Nation
Resident Scholarship Fund

Overview

Recognizing that our younger members are the vitality of our ever-aging organization, we ask your support of our Residents. 100% of the funds received go directly to support travel scholarships and educational opportunites, empowering our Residents to participate in our meetings and continue their interest in urologic research.

Founded in 1991, under the direction of past-presidents Dr. Lorne Sullivan and Dr. Tom Brady, the purpose of program is to award funds to outstanding Western Section Residents to help defray travel expenses to attend the Western Section's annual meetings. In doing so we hope to promote participation and excellence from our greatest resource, our training schools. In 1997, the program was named in honor of past-president, Dr. Earl F. Nation, who was a huge advocate of our Resident's and gave generously to the fund.

How much is the award?

Each year, Resident travel scholarships are awarded to one outstanding Resident from each of the 20 training facilities in the Western Section geographic boundaries. The award per Resident is currently $1000 except for Hawaii meetings in which case it is $1500.

Who selects which Resident's will receive an award?

One qualifying Resident is chosen by the Chief of Urology of each training facility within the Western Section geographic boundaries. To qualify, the Resident must submit an Abstract, be accepted, register and present their research at the annual meeting. Checks are sent at the conclusion of the meeting.

Scholarship award winners & contributors will be published in the official annual meeting program book and Mainstream Newsletter.

How can you help?

You can help this very important program continue by donating personally, as a medical group, through your company, as a memorial in a friend or relative's name, or as part of your estate planning.
