OTHER FINANCIAL SUPPORT
Fellowships and Scholarships in Orthodontics are awarded through funds designated for these purposes by Friends of the Orthodontic Department and by the School of Dentistry. The Andrew Brooks, Miriam Easterling Baker, and Jack and Renee Dunlevy Fellowships are available only to orthodontic residents. Recipients are selected by the faculty of the department. The number of awards is limited, awards are contingent on availability of funds, and may not be awarded every year.
The department supports and encourages resident travel to research (for example, AADR) and professional meetings (for example, GORP, AAO) by defraying the cost of registration and travel expenses. Such support is contingent on availability of funds.
Residents with faculty support and mentoring are encouraged to seek external funding for their MS research projects through the SAO or the NCTracs Program. Some resident research projects may be supported by faculty projects with external funding. Support with the approval of the chair is available through the Orthodontic Department Dental Foundation of NC funds.
