Grant of $50,000 per year to a USA or Canada vascular surgeon for vascular research. Funding is intended to support research in the areas of teaching, basic science, patient care, clinical research, translational, outcomes and health services research, and community service.

The Wylie Scholar Program is designed to support outstanding surgeons in the initial phase of their academic career, and to provide the financial assistance that will enable their development into academic vascular surgeon-scientists. The program has and will continue to create a pool of talented academic surgeons, destined to become leaders in vascular surgery and research at major medical centers in North America. 

The key criteria for selection of the potential Wylie Scholar will be a demonstrated aptitude for and interest in vascular research, skill and promise in vascular surgery, teaching ability, and leadership qualities.
