AAP Teaching Fellowships provide debt relief to young periodontal educators.
AAP Teaching Fellowships, made possible by a $1 million commitment from the American Academy of Periodontology, are intended to support the young periodontal educator's commitment to a career in academia by providing debt relief to qualified applicants. The $50,000 Fellowships are given to qualified faculty members within their first three years of teaching at a U.S. periodontal training institution. Funding for AAP Teaching Fellows is provided at the end of each year of full-time teaching.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Applicants for AAP Teaching Fellowships must be in the first three years of full-time teaching (as defined by the institution) at a U.S. periodontal program or have accepted a full-time faculty position at a U.S. periodontal program. Fellows are not eligible to apply for this award again but are welcome to apply for other Foundation awards.
HOW DO CANDIDATES APPLY?
Completed applications are due on or before June 1.
HOW ARE TEACHING FELLOWSHIPS AWARDED?
AAP Teaching Fellowship finalists will be invited to attend, at their own expense, a mandatory personal interview with the selection committee during the AAP Annual Meeting.
