American Dental Education Association Enid A. Neidle Scholar-in-Residence Program
This Scholar-in-Residence Program honors Enid A. Neidle, former President of ADEA (1985-86). Under her leadership, ADEA adopted its policy of promoting the advancement of women in dental education. The program offers a unique opportunity for a dental educator to concentrate on issues affecting women faculty. It is supported through an educational grant from Johnson & Johnson Consumer & Personal Products Worldwide, Division of Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc.
This program is a cumulative three-month experience at the ADEA office in Washington, DC. The scholar receives a stipend of $6,000 for travel and living expenses. The scholar’s institution continues to provide salary and fringe benefits for the duration of the experience. While in Washington, DC, the scholar will gain a distinct perspective on issues facing women faculty including promotion, advancement and tenure policies, entry and re-entry into the workforce, child care and elder care, women’s health, work patterns, advanced education and research opportunities, and other gender-related issues. The scholar will be assigned to a senior ADEA staff member and will be involved in a range of ADEA activities in addition to her principal project. ADEA will be flexible in the arrangement of time away from the scholar’s institution.

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.

American Academy of Periodontology Teaching Fellowships
AAP Teaching Fellowships, made possible by a $1 million commitment from the American Academy of Periodontology, are intended to support the young periodontal educator's commitment to a career in academia by providing debt relief to qualified applicants.

Funding for AAP Teaching Fellows is provided at the end of each year of full-time teaching.

Bud and Linda Tarrson Fellowship
The fellowship is a $36,000 award ($12,000 per year, for up to 3 years) for periodontists pursuing academic careers. The award is not intended to replace support that would normally have been provided by the recipient's institution.
Candidates for the Fellowship must be either a full-time faculty member at the instructor or assistant level or a part-time faculty member.

Nominations will be accepted until May 1 from a candidate's periodontal program director, who submits an application form. In addition, the candidate must meet all requirements of the application.
The Selection Committee is appointed by the AAP Foundation President and consists of members of the Tarrson family and other Academy members who are involved with the AAP Foundation. The Selection Committee will review applications and decide on three finalists by July 1. The selection is based on the quality of the individual and his or her work in the academic field, not financial need.
The top three candidates must attend the AAP Annual Meeting, where they will be interviewed preceding the opening of the meeting.
Charles W. Finley Visiting Scholar Education Grants
The American Academy of Periodontology Foundation established Finley Visiting Scholar Education Grants to honor the memory of Dr. Charles W. Finley and all of the great periodontal leaders of the past, present, and future.
Grants are awarded to accredited U.S. periodontal programs to offset honoraria, travel, promotion, and seminars by speakers in periodontology. The grants must be matched by funds from each department or institution. Though the speakers will spend the majority of their time with the periodontics department, both students and faculty, the grant requires that the speaker present a formal program to the faculty and students of the institution on a subject of interest to the entire dental institution.
Accredited U.S. periodontal programs may apply for grants.
Applications are due by February 14 and awards and funds will be issued in March.

Full-time periodontal educators who have been teaching at least two, and not more than five, full-time academic years at U.S. programs are eligible to apply. Applicants must be board-certified in periodontology and members of the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP).
Completed applications are due on or before June 1.
