Research Support Committee

The Research Support Committee was established to fulfill two major objectives: 1) to provide a funding mechanism for new research projects and 2) to facilitate the scientific development of the novice researcher by offering in-process peer review of research proposals.

All applications will be considered; however, priority for funding will be given to proposals received from pre-tenure full-time faculty members, graduate students at the MS and PhD level, and residents in various advanced education training programs. Given sufficient funds at the end of the fiscal year, secondary consideration will be given to postdoctoral fellows, senior investigators with established research programs, DDS students or pre-degree dental hygiene students, or non-tenure track full-time faculty.

Those interested in applying for Research Support Committee funding should start by downloading the RSC Proposal Guidelines linked below.
