Mid-Atlantic Section Research Scholar Fund

Since 1975, the AUA Foundation Research Scholars Program has provided more than 500 scholarships and awards to young men and women who are interested in pursuing a career in urologic research. The AUA Foundation Research Scholars Program is important to urologic research because it provides an opportunity for young scientists to begin a career in urologic research at a time when many urology departments across the country are faced with budget challenges that limit research opportunities. Researchers have been awarded scholarships through a variety of programs and fellowships. Many of those scholars remain in academic urology today, continuing to build upon the foundation of experience and knowledge gained during their research fellowships.

In 2010 the Mid-Atlantic Section Research Scholar Fund was created through collaboration with the AUA Foundation.
