Arthur T. Evans Memorial Scholarship
Sponsored by the American Urological Association (AUA)
Dr. Arthur T. Evans was one of the founding fathers of the AUAA. In the late 1960s, the AUA recognized the need for specialty education of supporting personnel - the urology nurse, technician, and physician's assistant. Dr. Evans was one of the leaders who was instrumental in influencing the AUA to create an Allied division as part of its organization. In 1969, the Allied Health Professions Committee of the AUA was formed, with Dr. Evans as chairman. This scholarship, established to recognize Dr. Evans' many contributions to allied urologic education, will be awarded to an allied health professional in the field of urology who is a SUNA member. Preferences will be given to someone who is certified by CBUNA.
