Call for Proposals: American Association of Public Health Dentistry Foundation Small Grant Program
The AAPHD Foundation was established to support the primary goals of the Association including:
• Promotion of effective efforts in disease prevention, health promotion and service delivery;
• Education of the public, health professionals and decision-makers regarding the importance of oral health to total well-being; and
• Expansion of the knowledge base of dental public health and fostering competency in its practice.
One exciting opportunity that the Foundation creates for its members is the AAPHD Foundation Small Grant Program.
The Small Grant Program is designed to stimulate innovative education or research projects that benefit dental public health and the public. The Foundation’s guiding principles and funding areas of interest identify a broad array of topics for which support can be provided. These include studies or interventions designed to:
• Improve access to personal and population based oral health services
• Build and strengthen the dental public health workforce
• Translate science into practice
• Maintain competency in dental public health.
The program will provide “small grants” that serve as an incentive to individuals and entities to move science, policy, and practice to the “next step” toward enhancing oral health.
Priority will be given to:
• Applications from individuals who are at an early stage of their dental public health careers. We are especially interested in applications from residents in the DPH Residency programs who are completing their required research projects and from members of Student Chapters.
• Applications that seek to utilize and enhance partnership with existing programs, projects, and organizations.
Grant Program Requirements:
• Award recipients must be members of AAPHD.
• The funding activity has a limited duration, up to one year. However, a nonfunded extension may be granted for one additional year in order to complete the project.
• The recipient(s) will be required to submit a mid-year brief report and a final written report to the Foundation. The final report should include a financial and program summary of the project’s results.
• The recipient must present a poster at the National Oral Health Conference upon completion of their project.
• Travel costs to the annual meeting will be at the expense of the award recipients.
Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded. The grant will not pay institutional indirect costs, Principal Investigator’s salary, or patient care costs. The grant may be paid directly to individuals, institutions or sponsoring organizations upon receipt of an invoice.
