The European Association of Urology invites applications for a year-long programme in leading European research institutions to suitably qualified candidates in Europe, 2020.

The European Urological Scholarship Programme (EUSP) believes that knowledge shared is knowledge multiplied; a sharing of expertise benefits not only a community but also enlarges the vision and influence of our speciality.

Each year the EUSP Board contacts certified host institutions to check for basic research projects that can be taken up by a potential EUSP scholar. These projects will be published online and will be promoted during

EAU meetings and the Annual EAU Congress to inform urologists who are interested to apply. After the annual deadline, the EUSP Board will review all applications and select the best candidate for each project.

Worth of Award

  • A maximum grant of €30,000 is available for each accepted project proposal.
