Grant of $50,000 per year for up to three years to a USA or Canada vascular surgeon for vascular research. Letters of reference are required prior to the application due date. 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.

Vascular Cures envisions that this award will enable the recipient to devote a significant amount of his or her total effort towards fundamental vascular research over a sustained period, thereby helping the recipient to qualify for independent funding from national health agencies.

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.
