The American Academy of Periodontology Foundation works to improve the periodontal and general health of the public through support for research and education.
To that end, the foundation welcomes applications for its Dr. And Mrs. Gerald M. Kramer Scholar Award for Excellence. The program provides a one-time $10,000 cash award in support of a third-year periodontal student enrolled in an accredited U.S. periodontal graduate program who has been nominated by his/her periodontal program director. The award will be based on the applicant's demonstrated excellence in both character and academic achievement. Personal integrity, as exemplified by leadership, community involvement, and concern for the needs of others, also will be considered.
See the American Academy of Periodontology Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
