International Fellowship Grants

The IUGA International Fellowship Grant Program is currently not accepting applications.

IUGA-sponsored fellowships allow for increased dissemination of urogynecological knowledge by funding travel and living expenses for a trainee to visit a renowned urogynecology center for a one-year clinical fellowship. The fellow is also expected to formulate a research study according to the research interests and local situation of the host site, which would be submitted for presentation at the next scheduled IUGA Annual Meeting, and the manuscript submitted for publication in the International Urogynecology Journal.


The applicant must:

  • Be and IUGA member in good standing.
  • Be in advanced training or have completed post-graduate training in gynecology, urology, or surgery.
