Call for Applications: Evidence-Based Dentistry Faculty Award
The ADA and the American Association for Dental Research have announced the creation of the Evidence-Based Dentistry Faculty Award.
The award will acknowledge a dental faculty member who has made significant contributions to implement and advance evidence-based dentistry.
The recipient will receive a $1,000 award at the AADR Fall Focused Symposium in San Antonio, which will precede the ADA 2014—America's Dental Meeting in October.
Applications are due June 30. Each school may submit a single application.
Requirements include ADA or AADR membership, employment as a full- or part-time faculty member at a U.S. dental school and completion of an EBD-related project within the past two years.
EBD focuses on providing personalized dental care based on the most current scientific knowledge. EBD integrates scientific evidence, the patient's oral and medical condition, medical history and treatment preferences and the dentist's clinical judgment.
A Procter & Gamble contribution supports the Evidence-Based Dentistry Faculty Award.

Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program 2014 Call for Applications
Deadline: March 18, 2014, 3:00 p.m. ET
The Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program was established to increase the number of faculty from historically disadvantaged backgrounds who can achieve senior rank in academic medicine and dentistry and who will encourage and foster the development of succeeding classes of such physicians and dentists. Four-year postdoctoral research awards are offered to universities, schools of medicine and dentistry and research institutions to support the research and career development of physicians and dentists from historically disadvantaged backgrounds who are committed to developing careers in academic medicine and dentistry and to serving as role models for students and faculty of similar background. The program defines the term “historically disadvantaged” to mean the challenges facing individuals because of their race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status or similar factors.
We will fund up to nine four-year awards in this grant cycle. Scholars will receive an annual stipend of up to $75,000 each, complemented by a $30,000 annual grant toward support of research activities.

American Academy of Periodontology Educator Scholarships
AAP Educator Scholarships were created to stimulate the development of periodontal educators by providing financial relief to students intending to pursue a career as full-time teachers at U.S. periodontal programs upon graduation from U.S. periodontal postdoctoral training programs. The $25,000 Educator Scholarship is intended to provide help with tuition and living expenses during the training period and may also be used for debt reduction. The number of Scholarships awarded each year will depend upon the applicant pool.
The Educator Scholar must commit to spending one year as a full-time periodontal educator at a U.S. program for each year he/she receives the award. If the recipient fails to meet the teaching requirement, the award is considered a loan and must be repaid.
Applicants for the Educator Scholarships must have been accepted into, or must be current students in, a periodontal postdoctoral training program in the United States. Applicants are welcome to apply in any year of their periodontal programs. Recipients must be student members of the AAP at the time they receive the Scholarship, and must intend to teach full-time in a U.S. periodontal program upon graduation. Applicants for other Foundation scholarships and fellowships may apply for the AAP Educator Scholarships. Previous recipients of the AAP Educator Scholarship may not re-apply.
Completed applications are due by June 1. The application may be completed online and e-mailed as an attachment, with supporting documentation mailed separately, or all materials may be mailed together.
In addition to the application, the applicant's program director must submit a letter of nomination agreeing to provide the AAP Educator Scholar with guidance on pursuing a career in academics and certifying that the award is a supplement to, not a replacement for, any salary, stipend, research support, or other funding to which the student would normally be entitled.
The applications will be reviewed by a selection committee appointed by the AAP Foundation President. Finalists for the scholarship will be asked to attend a mandatory personal interview with the selection committee during the AAP Annual Meeting.
