2018 COMPETITION - CLOSED
PROGRAM IS FOR STUDENTS ALREADY ENROLLED IN SCHULICH DENTISTRY'S DDS PROGRAM
Schulich Dentistry Research Opportunity Program (SDROP) provides an opportunity for students already enrolled in Schulich Dentistry's DDS program to contribute to clinical and basic science research. Each year, a limited number of studentships are awarded by competition for the upcoming summer.
The goals of this program are … 1) to promote student participation in oral health research, 2) to provide students with opportunities to meet their peers and present their research at national and internal meetings, 3) to contribute to publications in peer-reviewed journals, and 4) to encourage students to consider careers in oral health research. There are many bright and experienced students in Dentistry that would be an asset to research at Schulich.
In the past, some projects have not required the full 12 weeks to complete, or students have reduced availability due to clinic assignments. Therefore, faculty will have an option of reducing their project to a 10-week period (will be indicated on the project form).
10-week period - total stipend of $4,167
12-week period - total stipend of $5,000
Deadline for applications: January 11, 2018
Submit forms electronically (in MS Word) to Dentistry’s Research Office Dentistry.Research@schulich.uwo.ca
All DDS Students (Years 1-3) and ITD Students (Year 1) are eligible to apply.
All Faculty members associated with Schulich Dentistry are invited to submit one (or more) project proposals
