The Northeastern Section and its’ Foundation are dedicated to furthering urologic research. The Research and Education Fund was initiated in 1995 by Searle Canada and Searle USA. The purpose of this fund is to assure the membership of the NSAUA continued excellence in research and educational activity within our Section. Through the Section’s Foundation and the Research and Education Fund, the Section is able to provide many opportunities for young Residents such as financial assistance to participate in our Annual Meeting and the opportunity to win Research Grant awards, such as the Young Investigator Awards and the Resident Prize Essay Contest.
In addition to donations from our generous members each year, a small portion of each members’ dues payment is designated to support the mission of the Foundation and provide funding for the ongoing educational activities for residents conducted through the Research and Education Fund.
Young Investigator Awards — Scholarship Program
The NSAUA Scholarship Program was established in 1998 to provide financial scholarships to support research and educational projects. The program currently offers up to two scholarship awards annually, of $30,000. These Young Investigator Awards provide financial assistance to a researcher in basic or clinical sciences related to urology, and to acquiring, developing or improving his or her knowledge and skills in a specific aspect of the specialty.
Resident Prize Essay Contest
The Resident Prize Essay Award is supported by the Section’s Foundation and Research and Education fund. All residents and medical students from the Section’s 16 Urology Training Programs are invited to enter their best basic science or clinical research project for consideration. Awards are presented at the Annual Meeting each year. Entries are limited to one (1) Basic Science manuscript and one (1) Clinical research manuscript per resident.
Urology Residents and Fellows Reimbursement Form
The Section Foundation supports its 16 Urology Programs by providing $500 resident stipends (up to four for a total of $2,000 per program). These stipends are to help offset costs associated with sending residents/fellows who participate in the education of the meeting (abstract presentation, Resident Debate, Residents Committee, etc). The funding is sent directly to the Institution, not to the individuals chosen to attend. Programs will receive information immediately following the Annual Meeting to apply for these stipends.
