Healthcare Scholarship: Academy of Laser Dentistry Overview

Overview of the Academy of Laser Dentistry Scholarship

Since 2004, The Academy of Laser Dentistry has offered a scholarship to undergraduate or graduate dentistry students, which covers ALD membership as well as all associated travel and living expenses to attend the annual Academy of Laser Dentistry conference. At the conference, scholarship winners have the honor of delivering an oral presentation, a table clinic or a poster presentation on a relevant theme. In addition to this prize, known as the Dr. Eugene M. Seidner Student Scholarship, three runners-up receive cash prizes of $500, $250 and $100 each. The ALD also offers a special recognition award for students of pediatric dentistry, which is granted annually.

The primary ALD scholarship program, named after the form ALD president, Dr. Eugene M. Seidner, is intended to encourage undergraduate and graduate students in their understanding of lasers in dentistry. In order to apply, students must be currently enrolled in an accredited dental university faculty, either at the undergraduate or graduate level. In addition, recent graduates of dental programs may apply within one year of their graduation.

All applicants must be nominated for the award by their dental university faculty or by other ALD members. Applications must be downloaded and submitted to the ALD by email by June 30th. In addition to the application form itself, each applicant must submit an abstract for a presentation, to be given at the Academy’s annual conference. Applicants must also submit a letter of reference, from a relevant faculty member. The deadline for the letter of reference is September 1st. If the research for the presentation is ongoing, applicants may submit their presentation abstract as late as September 1st. All applications are reviewed by members of the ALD University and Academia Relations and by the Student Scholarship committees.

Scholarship recipients are notified between September 15th and October 15th by postal mail. Scholarship winners must then prepare and present their presentation at the annual Academy of Laser Dentistry conference. Recipients are also expected to attend the Standard Proficiency Dental Laser Certification Course, most sessions of the annual conference and to attend the President’s Dinner and Awards Ceremony. Once they have presented on their chosen theme, the scholarship winners receive a framed certificate recognizing their accomplishments. In addition, within 30 days of the conference, they must produce a manuscript covering the same material as the presentation, for publication in the Journal of Laser Dentistry.
