About the Wylie Scholar Award

FAVR's annual Wylie Scholar award consists of a three-year, $150,000 grant given to the most promising vascular surgeon-scientists in North America who are dedicated to an academic career involving original novel research. Since 1996, 12 individuals have each received the award. Named in honor of Edwin J. Wylie, M.D., an eminent visionary who established vascular surgical training at UCSF, the award recognizes and financially assists vascular surgeon-scientists conducting independent research that has the potential to revolutionize how vascular diseases are treated or cured. Every FAVR dollar awarded has been leveraged nearly 13-fold by award recipients through additional permanent funding.
