Based on the AAPD’s success in obtaining directed funding of $10 million for pediatric dentistry training in the fiscal year (FY) 2015 federal budget, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) recently awarded a number of new postdoctoral and predoctoral grants to support training of pediatric dentists and to better train general dentists in treating children.
For more background on the Title VII health professions training program for pediatric dentistry, see here.
Please note this list is subject to updates and modifications as more information becomes available, including grant abstracts.
HRSA is also funding six non-competing continuation grants (involving grantees which competed in a previous year) through Postdoctoral and Faculty Development programs that have a pediatric dentistry focus, for a total of $2,310,936.
