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.

Awards for Excellence in Health Care Journalism Contest
Since 2004, the Awards for Excellence in Health Care Journalism have recognized the best health reporting in print, broadcast and online media. The contest was created by journalists for journalists and is not influenced or funded by commercial or special-interest groups.
The contest retains its topic-based categories, where entries compete head-to-head no matter whether they appeared in magazines, newspapers, trade publications or on radio or television stations or websites.
The online contest entry system, which debuted three years ago, will be used again this year.
The early-bird deadline to enter – which comes with a discounted entry fee – will be Dec. 20. The final deadline will be 5 p.m. CT on Jan. 13.
We offer an early-bird discount for those entries submitted by Dec. 20, 2013. The rate for these entries is $30 for members and $55 for nonmembers.
Regular entries must be submitted via our online entry process by Jan. 13, 2014, or earlier. These entries will cost $50 for members and $75 for nonmembers. Payment may be made online by credit card or called in to the AHCJ office. Checks should be made payable to the Association of Health Care Journalists. Join the Association and receive the member rate.
If you are unable to use the online entry process, call the AHCJ office for guidance. Staff can usually assist you over the phone. If you are still unable to digitize or upload your entry, AHCJ staff will quote you a price to complete the work for you.
Entries can include a wide range of health coverage including public health, consumer health, medical research, the business of health care and health ethics. The topic categories include Business, Investigative, Consumer/Feature, Public Health and Health Policy. We have a category just for trade publications, although trade-published stories can also be entered in any of the topic categories. We have retained the beat reporting category from earlier contests, which is open to all mediums.
First-place winners earn $500, a framed certificate and complimentary lodging for two nights and registration for the annual conference, March 27-30, 2014, in Denver. First-place winners will be recognized at the conference and will be encouraged to appear on panels to discuss their winning work.
Twelve award categories
Beat Reporting (all sizes)
An individual award for outstanding beat coverage. Entrants should explain the beat on the questionnaire and may submit up to four stories, carrying a single byline. The same stories may also be submitted in other categories.
Health Policy (large and small division)
Stories that explore access to health care, medical quality and costs, as well as decisions about health care made by government, employers and other stakeholders
Public Health (large and small division)
Stories that deal with health – often of a large population – rather than specific medical research or a specific individual.
Trade (all sizes)
Articles from publications catering exclusively or primarily to specific groups, such as healthcare professionals, advocacy groups or organizations. Trade stories can also be entered in other categories, following rules on circulation size in those categories divided by size.
Business (large division and small division)

Investigative (large division and small division)
Stories that shed light on things the public should know, but government, private industry or others would rather remain secret

Categories applying to "all sizes" will seek the best work in that topic category regardless of size.

Gallagher Koster Innovative Practices in College Health Grant
Gallagher Koster has established through the American College Health Foundation the Gallagher Koster Innovative Practices in College Health Fund. The purpose of this fund is to provide financial support to student health centers and their staff for the development of innovative practices that improve access to quality health care for students.
Two separate mini-grants will be awarded through the Gallagher Koster Fund in 2014. This is the eleventh year that the Gallagher Koster Innovative Practices in College Health grant will be awarded. This grant supports the development of creative solutions to improve access to quality health care for all students. In addition, a mini-grant will be offered through a program titled, Innovative Practices in Culturally Competent Health Care. Funding through this second award will be used to plan, design, implement, and evaluate the use of culturally competent health care practices that focus on the successful treatment of specific diseases and health conditions that have been documented by national health statistics to disproportionately affect racial and ethnic minority populations, including African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian American/Pacific Islanders, and American Indians/Alaska Natives student populations.
The goal of this grant program is to spawn new ideas and innovative practices that improve students' access to health care and to share these strategies with other college health care professionals via presentations at state, regional, and national conferences, and publications in college health related periodicals.
American College Health Association Institutional or Individual Members are eligible to apply for these grants. Applicants are encouraged to put together project proposals that develop or utilize partnerships on their campuses and that demonstrate internal financial and in-kind support. The deadline for proposals is January 31, 2014. Grant recipient(s) will be announced at the 2014 American College Health Association Annual Meeting scheduled for May 27-31 in San Antonio, Texas.
