The American Academy of Periodontology Foundation is accepting applications for its Bud and Linda Tarrson Fellowship program.
The fellowship is a $30,000 award ($10,000 per year, for up to three years) for periodontists pursuing a career in academia. The award is not intended to replace support that would normally have been provided by the recipient's institution.
To be eligible, applicants must be either a full-time faculty member at the instructor or assistant level or a part-time faculty member at a U.S. institution. The candidate must have been affiliated for ten years or less with a degree-granting institution with a career goal that includes teaching and research in periodontology. Applications will be accepted only from candidates at an institution in the U.S.
The top three candidates must attend the AAP annual meeting, where they will be interviewed preceding the opening of the meeting.
