AAP 2018 Annual Meeting


Nobel Biocare Student Member Annual Meeting Scholarship

2017 Annual Meeting
The Annual Meeting serves as the AAP’s premier live-learning event and provides the opportunity for attendees to network with fellow periodontal specialists and attend world-class educational sessions.

Through the generous support of Nobel Biocare, the American Academy of Periodontology will award 10 scholarships to U.S. and Canadian members currently enrolled in a periodontal residency program.

Each scholarship includes $500 to be used towards Annual Meeting expenses. In addition, scholarship winners will be recognized during the Student Extravaganza, and in the December issue of Periospectives.

General Guidelines

  • Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited U.S. or Canadian periodontal residency program.
  • Applicants must submit a completed application online, and provide an abbreviated CV (no more than three pages) and a letter of recommendation from a program director.
  • Scholarships must be used for the 2017 Annual Meeting and may not be deferred to a different year.

Application Criteria 
To be considered, applicants must:

  • Demonstrate how attending the Annual Meeting will enhance his/her professional career.
  • Describe which Annual Meeting topics are of interest.
  • Provide any current involvement in periodontal activities (or plans for future involvement).
  • Agree to be featured in Periospectives, or other AAP communications, detailing his/her experience as a scholarship recipient.

A large number of scholarship applications are anticipated this year. Applicants should think outside the box in their application responses! Originality and creativity will be considered.

Application Process
