Knowledge shared is knowledge multiplied. This is the credo of the European Urological Scholarship Programme (EUSP). Its 5 core programmes can offer you exclusive opportunities to visit prestigious institutions, observe experts in action and undertake innovatory clinical and experimental research.


The EUSP offers the following stellar programmes:

Short Visit

For a duration of 2 to 3 weeks, the Short Visit provides you with a first-rate learning experience at a centre of excellence in Europe. This programme is a precursor to the 1-Year Scholarship and Fellowship programmes.

1-Year Scholarship

Take part in a year-long research project under the guidance of experts. Finetune your skills and enhance your knowledge in a leading certified host centre abroad.

Clinical Visit

Know the best practices by observing the experts firsthand at a reputable institution abroad for a period of 6 to 12 weeks. Collaborate with the experts to generate an international peer-reviewed publication.


Elevate your capabilities and enrich your clinical practice through outstanding fellowships developed by the EUSP and the EAU Section Office.

Visiting Professor

Institutions in Europe can apply to this programme to receive support in hosting a leading European urologist as a visiting professor for 5 days.

Eligibility for the programmes

Applicants for the EUSP Scholarships must be EAU members who are urologists, urologists-in-training, or urology-associated basic scientists. All projects and/or visits must be conducted in a European institution. Further conditions for application can be found in the description of each programme.

Host centres

To streamline the certification process of training centres, the European Association of Urology (EAU) and the European Board of Urology (EBU) developed the EUSP Host Centre Certification programme.

This certification enables an institution to provide scholars the locale for optimal knowledge exchange while setting standards for equal urological care in Europe.

Collaboration with EAU RF

The mission of the EAU Research Foundation (EAU RF) is to promote, facilitate and stimulate clinical and basic research in European urology. The EAU RF offers numerous interesting topics for clinical trials and basic research. Together with an RF investigator, applicants can choose a high-quality project that meets their field of interest. Once a project is approved, applicants can apply for a grant via the EUSP.
