AAP Educator Scholarship


AAP Educator Scholarships were created to stimulate the development of periodontal educators by providing financial relief to students intending to pursue a career as full-time teachers at U.S. periodontal programs upon graduation from U.S. periodontal postdoctoral training programs. The $25,000 Educator Scholarship is intended to provide help with tuition and living expenses during the training period and may also be used for debt reduction. The number of Scholarships awarded each year will depend upon the applicant pool. Applicants must have been accepted into, or must be current students, in a US periodontal postdoctoral program. They may apply in any year of their periodontal program. Recipients must intend to teach full-time in a US periodontal program upon graduation. Applicants for other AAPF awards may apply for the AAP Educator Scholarship. Previous recipients of the AAP Educator Scholarship may not re-apply.
