The fellowship is a $30,000 award ($10,000 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. Annual payments shall not be made unless evidence of continued teaching as described in the award criteria is provided.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Candidates for the Fellowship must be either a full-time faculty member at the instructor or assistant level or a part-time faculty member. The candidate must be affiliated for 10 years or less with a degree-granting institution, and their career goal must be teaching and research in periodontology. Applications will be accepted only from candidates at U.S. institutions.
