The 2016 Urology Care Foundation Research Scholar Program competition is open! At least 27 awards are available for the 2016 competition, a record high and the leading funding opportunity available through the Urology Care Foundation. Of particular note is an award that is available in sexual medicine research. This award is the inaugural award sponsored through the new Urology Care Foundation/Sexual Medicine Society of North America Research Scholar Endowment Fund which was made possible thanks to the efforts and support of the Sexual Medicine Society of North America and the AUA! The awardee must be a member of the Sexual Medicine Society of North America.
