Gifts made to and held in these Board-designated funds will establish and activate a restricted endowment upon meeting the minimum funding amount through outright gifts. No fellowships will be awarded until the year following the fund reaching the prescribed minimum amount. When the endowment fund activates, the original funds and any additional principal cannot be withdrawn, expended, or otherwise exhausted.
AADR Endowment – Anne D. Haffajee Fellowship
Donate Now to the Anne D. Haffajee Fellowship
This Fellowship was created in recognition of Dr. Haffajee’s many contributions to clinical research in Periodontology and Oral Biology and her prominence as a female leader and role model in the field. The immediate goal of this fellowship is to support women researchers at the early stages of their scientific careers.
Fellowship reached an important endowment milestone in 2016, which enabled the
first fellowship to be awarded in 2017! Donations continue to be solicited so
that the fellowship award amount can keep pace with inflation, be increased,
and/or that additional fellowships be awarded.
