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.
