American Academy of Dermatology Association’s State Advocacy Grant Program
The purpose of the American Academy of Dermatology Association’s (AADA) State Advocacy Grant Program is to provide financial assistance to state dermatology societies for the advancement of their health policy initiatives, including state lobbying expenses.
Grants are allocated on an annual basis through an application process. Completed applications are reviewed by the AADA State Policy Committee and ultimately approved by the AADA Council on Government Affairs, Health Policy and Practice (GAHPP Council).
State societies applying for a grant must submit an application and all required supporting materials by the established deadline.
State advocacy grants are not guaranteed sources of funding and successful grants are not intended to be an ongoing source of funding for state society advocacy efforts.
Please note priority review will be given to state societies that are applying for the first time or have only received one prior grant award. State societies that have received two or more previous grants will not be eligible for funding consideration until all other received applications are evaluated, except at the discretion of the State Policy Committee in the case of extenuating circumstances.
Through the review process, the State Policy Committee may request additional information or a conference call with state society applicants to address any questions or concerns about their proposals.
The 2014 application deadline is September 30, 2013.
American Academy of Dermatology Awards for Young Investigators in Dermatology
The AAD Awards for Young Investigators in Dermatology recognize outstanding basic and clinical/translational research by young dermatology investigators in the United States and Canada, and the dermatology departments that support their efforts. The purpose of the award is to acknowledge research contributions that further the improvement of diagnosis and therapeutics in the practice and science of dermatology.
Two outstanding young investigators will be selected as recipients of the award, which is presented during the AAD's Annual Meeting.
Each winner will receive an engraved plaque and a $6,000 prize that is shared equally between the investigator and the dermatology department supporting the research efforts.
The deadline for nominations is October 15, 2013.
The selection process
The Awards Selection Panel includes representatives from the Council on Science and Research; the editorial board of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology; the Association of Professors of Dermatology; the Society for Investigative Dermatology; an AAD member-at-large; and a resident in dermatology or past winner.
The four criteria for judging nominees are:
■ Originality of research concept.
■ Soundness of research design.
■ Quality/clarity of research report.
■ Perceived value of the research to dermatology.
Each criterion will be evaluated on a numerical, zero to five basis, with five being superior and 0 being well below average.
The total of the numerical rankings combined with the letters of recommendation will be used by the six physicians on the Awards Selection Panel to determine the winner.
If external collaborators or sources of external funding represent any perceived or actual conflict of interest with the AAD and its mission, the AAD reserves the right to exclude the applicant from consideration.
