The mission of the Urology Care Foundation, the official foundation of the American Urological Association (AUA), is to support the improvement of urological care by funding research, developing patient education, advancing humanitarian initiatives, and pursuing philanthropic support. Having recognized a major need to support the future of the urologic research workforce, the Urology Care Foundation offers a portfolio of mentored research training awards designed to recruit promising young physicians and investigators into urologic research and foster their career success.

Established in 2010, the Medical Student Fellowship Program is a chance for outstanding medical students to pursue urology research by engaging in a research fellowship mentored by world-class urologic scientists. Fellows receive $4,000 stipends to support them during a mentored research experience.

To be eligible to compete for a 2024 Urology Care Foundation Medical Student Fellowship, applicants must be either a current or matriculating medical student enrolled at a medical school within the boundaries of the AUA Sections. Applicants are not required to be U.S. citizens but must have valid Social Security numbers for Internal Revenue Service purposes. While applicants do not have to be US citizens, projects must be located at an accredited host institution within the boundaries of the AUA Sections.
