The AAIDF will provide an additional $500 for travel expenses to the Annual Conference. Applications are due July 1.
The AAIDF Large Research Grants Program is intended to provide limited support for meritorious dental implant research projects which include, but are not limited to, the following purposes:
- To conduct research that determines the feasibility of a larger research project
- To develop and test new techniques and procedures
- To conduct small clinical or animal research projects
- To analyze grant data
Large Research Grant applicants may request up to $25,000 to fund a project for up to a two-year grant period. Successful applicants who require additional time to perform the proposed research may request a no-cost extension of the grant period without additional monetary support.
