Statement of Grant Eligibility The Society for Pediatric Urology will sponsor an annual research grant in 2017 of up to $30,000. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to promote pediatric urological research at a faculty/attending level and help SPU members to develop innovative and impact-creating research proposals that are competitive for sustainable outside funding.

All areas of research will be promoted, including basic science, translational as well as clinical research. Depending upon the quality of applications, the SPU may split funding to support more than one proposal. Eligibility for the grant is limited to pediatric urological clinicians in practice or clinicians and researchers serving within divisions or departments of pediatric urology. Fellows are ineligible to serve as a Principal Investigator (PI) on an SPU Research Grant. Applicants must be members of the SPU or have member sponsorship. Research that is actively NIH funded is excluded from consideration.
