Full-time residents as of the application deadline in an accredited US periodontal program in any year of residency are eligible to apply. Co-applications are acceptable only if equal contribution to the research project by each student is confirmed by the graduate program director and the number of co-applicants should be limited to two.
Amount of Award and Use of Funds
The Schoor Award Committee distributes one $2,000 award each year for a manuscript written by the resident as sole or principal author based on his or her research. A Schoor Research Award is a tax-exempt income-supplementing scholarship. The manuscript must be appropriate for submission to the Journal of Periodontology, but receipt of a Schoor Award is not contingent upon publication.
Candidates may apply by June 1 through the link below.
Publication of an Award-winning manuscript in any venue must include a footnote acknowledging the financial support of the Schoor Research Award of the American Academy of Periodontology Foundation.

“I feel better and better each day that I teach. I consider myself a privileged individual for having a job that I love in a wonderful institution. At the same time, having the ability to positively influence the careers and lives of the students with whom I interact makes it feel even better. My own personal experiences as a student helped me understand the importance of mentorship, therefore, I try my best to inspire and support pre- and post-doctoral students alike. I think my progression over the past two years has been tremendous in part because of the peace of mind afforded by the AAP Foundation Teaching Fellowship I was awarded in 2011; I can focus on being the best teacher and researcher I can be without worrying about finances,” says Gustavo Avila-Ortiz, DDS, MS, PhD.
