Residency Research Awards

Urology Care Foundation Residency Research Awards help provide urology residents with research training to enable them to build momentum toward a career that includes research. After more than ten years as a successful program to support surgeon-scientist training, the program has been restructured to increase support for a wider community of residents interested in pursuing urologic research. Changes include:

  • Funding Amount: $10,000 per award. Institutional support must be demonstrated in the application, though matching funds are no longer required.
  • Allowable Costs: Restricted to research supplies and other resources needed to conduct the research project and the resident's research training.
  • Award Period: 3-12 months.
  • Level of Effort: 80% protected time for the duration of the project.

The 2022 competition is now closed. Please check back in the fall for next year's competition.
