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 and who is certified by CBUNA.
The scholarship was established to honor Ruth Hughes for her many contributions to the specialty of urology. This scholarship is awarded to a SUNA member whose focus is related to long-term care.
