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.

2014 Arthur R. Frechette Research Awards in Prosthodontics
New investigators in Prosthodontics are encouraged to apply for one of two 2014 Arthur R. Frechette Research Awards in Prosthodontics. Each Award recognizes original research by new investigators and is sponsored by the Prosthodontics Group of the IADR and supported by the Whip Mix Corporation. One award is for Prosthodontic research undertaken with a Materials Science or Bioengineering oriented protocol and the other is for Prosthodontic research undertaken with a Biological Sciences and Tissue Engineering oriented protocol. Researchers carrying out original research are eligible for the Frechette Award if they have been the primary author of no more than three articles published in refereed dental journals.
Each award carries a cash prize of $1,000.
Research submitted for the 2014 IADR General Session & Exhibition, is eligible for consideration for the Frechette Award, provided it has not been published elsewhere or will not be under consideration for another award. Abstracts must be submitted to the Prosthodontics Group of the IADR by the IADR deadline (January 13, 2014) with the appropriate boxes on the on-line submission checked.
The abstracts will be judged for (1) originality and scientific design of the investigation, (2) suitability of the methods of analysis, and (3) scientific value of the work. Selected finalists asked to submit manuscripts and these and their oral presentation will be judged at the IADR General Session & Exhibition of the IADR (June 25-29, 2014).

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.

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.
