AAP Foundation Schoor Research Award


The American Academy of Periodontology Foundation supports resident research in the field of periodontology through the Robert S. Schoor Research Award Program, a $2,000 annual award for resident-written manuscript. A wide range of research subjects that are significant to the clinical practice of periodontology will be supported. The program is named in memory of Robert S. Schoor, DDS, a champion of periodontal education and students. He served as Director of the Advanced Program in Periodontics and Implant Dentistry at New York University College of Dentistry, President of the American Academy of Periodontology, and Examiner of the American Board of Periodontology. He also served as a Captain in the United States Air Force. Full-time residents in an accredited US periodontal program in any year of residency are eligible to apply. The applicant is required to submit a manuscript written by the resident as sole or principal author based on his or her research. The manuscript must be appropriate for submission to the Journal of Periodontology, but receipt of a Schoor Award is not contingent upon publication. Previous recipients of the Schoor Award may not re-apply. Unsuccessful applicants may re-apply up to two more times.
