Research Scholar Awards

The AUA offers a portfolio of mentored research training awards to recruit outstanding young investigators into urologic research and foster their career success.

The Research Scholar Program, our premier funding opportunity, provides $40,000 per year for one- and two-year mentored training for:

  • Clinical and postdoctoral fellows who are no more than five years beyond completing a doctorate or residency
  • Early career investigators who are in the first five years after beginning a faculty position

The 2021 competition is scheduled to open in summer 2020. In light of the unprecedented challenges for biomedical research and training due to the coronavirus pandemic, and to provide adequate time for application preparation, the application deadline will be extended to November 5, 2020 . Questions about applying to the 2021 program can be directed to
