Grant of $50,000 per year over three years to a USA or Canada vascular surgeon scientist who demonstrates potential in the field. The recipient will devote a significant amount of time to fundamental vascular research over a long-term period. It is the intention of this award to enable the recipient to qualify for independent funding from national health agencies.

The annual Vascular Cures Wylie Scholar award provides a grant to the most promising vascular surgeon scientists in North America who are dedicated to an academic career combining their clinical practice with original, innovative basic laboratory or clinical research.

Vascular Cures' 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 Wylie Scholar 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 award may be used to support research in the following areas: basic science, translational, clinical research, outcomes/health services research, teaching, community service, and patient care. No later than two months after the funding year, the awardee will submit an update of progress and expenses for the previous year. This will be evaluated by their respective Chief of Vascular Surgery and by the Vascular Cures Review Committee.

Award Conditions:

-The candidate must prepare and present a challenging research plan to be completed during the term of the award.

-The candidate must have a research mentor who will be an additional resource for his or her research.

-The Chairman of the Department of Surgery must guarantee that the candidate will have 40% protected time available to devote to the research investigation, as well as facilities, equipment and resources to execute the proposed studies.

-The candidate is expected to participate in the Vascular Cures Wylie Scholar award event each year during their research grant tenure. This includes participating in a scientific interchange with Vascular Cures Board of Directors and donors. Up to $1,800 of the annual stipend may be used for travel expenses and one night of lodging.
