American Academy of Implant Dentistry Research Foundation Research Grants Program
The American Academy of Implant Dentistry Research Foundation (AAIDRF) Research Grants Program is intended to provide limited support for meritorious dental implant research projects which include, but are not limited to, the following purposes:
• To conduct research which determines the feasibility of a larger research project. This may be described as the conduct of pilot studies of venture research.
• To develop and test new techniques and procedures.
• To carry out a small clinical or animal research project.
• To analyze existing data.
Investigators from any scientific discipline and at any stage of their career may apply for a grant. These awards are appropriate for new investigators and those changing areas of research or resuming research careers.
The proposed project may be related to, but the aims must be distinctly different from, those of pending grant applications. The request may be used to supplement projects currently supported by Federal or non-Federal funds or to provide interim support for projects under review.
Applicants may request up to $25,000 (total costs) for the entire budget to fund the project for up to a two-year grant period. Successful applicants who require additional time to perform the proposed research may request extensions of the grant period without additional funds. This grant is not renewable; however, grantees under this program are encouraged to apply for a regular Research Project Grant to a Federal agency, e.g., the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Veterans Administration, or the Department of Defense, to maintain continuity in their studies.
The Foundation reserves first right of refusal on all papers resulting from the approved/funded project.
Applications received by August 1 will be considered for award announcement at the AAIDRF Annual Meeting. Funding of approved projects will begin on January 1 of the following year.
