The Bud and Linda Tarrson Fellowship will be given for up to 3 years to periodontists pursuing academic careers. Candidates for the Fellowship must be either a full-time faculty member at the instructor or assistant level or a part-time faculty member. The candidate must be affiliated for 10 years or less with a degree-granting institution, and their career goal must be teaching and research in periodontology. Applications will be accepted only from candidates at U.S. institutions. The selection is based on the quality of the individual and his or her work in the academic field, not financial need. Please visit the fellowship's website for more information.
