The WSAUA is pleased to announce its support of a second AUA Research Scholar Program Grant.
In accordance with the Board of Directors decision at its recent meeting in Orlando, FL on on May 18, 2014, the creation of a second Western Section Research Scholar Fund is to be used to support research projects from all urological disciplines. The total endowment to fund a scholar in perpetuity will be $1.5 million, with AUA contributing $1.25 million and the Section contributing $250,000.
The competition is now open for the 2015 Urology Care Foundation Research Scholars Program, and the AUA is proud to announce that the program recently established four new endowments! The AUA Western Section and the Society for Urologic Oncology (SUO) each established second endowment funds. The Indian American Urological Association (IAUA) established two funds to support the Indian American Urological Association/Sakti Das, MD Research Scholar Award and the Indian American Urological Association/Kalish Kedia, MD Research Scholar Award.
