ACPEF Research Fellowships in Prosthodontics
The ACP Education Foundation is committed to assisting the dental profession in its quest for continuous improvement in clinical care. This fall, the ACPEF will be awarding research fellowship grants in the amount of $6,000. These will be awarded to support meritorious research proposals that seek to advance basic scientific and applied clinical knowledge in the area of prosthodontics.

The grantee will be required to submit one brief progress reports per year until the previously stated obligations have been met.
Any investigation relevant to prosthodontic care is appropriate. This would include all disciplines in prosthodontics: fixed, implant, maxillofacial, and removable prosthetics.
This competition is open to all prosthodontics residents who are members of the ACP. Please review the submission guidelinescarefully and return applications to the ACPEF by Nov. 10, 2014.
