IADR Heraeus Kulzer Travel Award
Supported by Heraeus
Deadline: October 7, 2014
The IADR is inviting applications from young investigators who have submitted an abstract which has a dental materials component for a travel award to support their attendance at the IADR General Session. The objective of this award program is to encourage young investigators to undertake research in new/innovative testing methods of dental materials, and new ideas and approaches to improve and develop dental materials.
- Young investigators (up to five years post-graduation from dental, material science, specialty training, or pre-PhD) are eligible to apply for a travel award. (No persons having already obtained a PhD are eligible to apply.)
- Entrants must provide a verification letter of their educationalstatus.
- In addition, entrants can only receive an IADR Heraeus Kulzer Travel Award once.
- Applicants MUST be IADR members.
- To apply you must select the IADR Heraeus Kulzer Travel Award and fill out the eligibility requirements when submitting your abstract for the IADR/AADR/CADR General Session & Exhibition by the October 7, 2014 deadline
- Applicants must also submit electronically a separate and more detailed overview of their projects (2 pages, double-spaced).
- This overview must include brief details of their material and methods, the results of the research including details of statistical analysis, and a brief discussion including how the research will affect the field of dental materials.
- The overview must be received in the Global Headquarters no later than October 7, 2014 for the application to be considered.
- Please submit the overview and verification letter in one PDF package electronically to Sheri S. Herren, Strategic Programs Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org indicating clearly with your submission that this is associated with the award and include your abstract submission reference.
In 2015, five (5) awards will be granted—one person from each of the following regions: North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa/Middle East; and the Asia/Pacific Region. Please see IADR Website for countries included in Regions. The winner of each award will receive US $2,500 for expenses to attend the IADR General Session & Exhibition.
All abstracts submitted for the IADR General Session are subject to peer review within the scientific groups of the IADR. Once the abstracts which are the basis of an application for a travel award have been accepted for presentation, they will be grouped into the regional categories outlined above and subject to an adjudication process.
The Award is supported by a generous donation from Heraeus Kulzer.
