The Academy of Dental Materials invites applications from members currently in an early stage investigator status (defined in the Guidelines) for a sponsored Fellowship in dental materials science. This award is being made to support those early stage investigators conducting research directly related to dental materials, to educate and interconnect our field of science, as outlined in our mission statement (please, refer to the bylaws document, article II, “Objectives of the Academy”). The intention of this award is to promote excellent science by sponsoring new collaborative research projects or expanding on existing projects in a meaningful way. It is intended that the awarded candidate will spend at least six months at a research facility outside the institution where s/he has obtained his/her PhD degree. The Fellowship will be awarded every two years. Proposals are welcome from candidates from all geographical regions (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia/Pacific and Africa). In each funding cycle, awards will be preferably given to candidates from a region different from the previous award (in a rotation manner) as long as there are qualified proposals. Each Fellowship consists of a lump sum of $20,000 (USD) to cover expenses associated with the proposal. Allowable items are listed under the “budget justification” tab. Upon completion of the award period, recipients are required to present their research at a subsequent ADM meeting no later than 2 years after the start date, by submitting an abstract for a poster or an invited oral presentation.

The Fellowship is in memory of Rafael L. Bowen.
