Both Education Research Group Student Travel Award and an Education Research Group Faculty Travel Award are determined at the Annual General Session and Exhibition of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR). See Future Meetings. The guidelines for the Awards are listed below:

An Award of $400 is to be presented to an enrolled student (undergraduate or postgraduate) who has an abstract accepted for an Education Research Group sponsored session. Membership of the Education Research Group is not required. The Group Chairperson of the relevant meeting will advise the assessors of the identity of the participating students. The student has the responsibility of presenting the research in compliance with IADR By-laws.

The purpose of the Awards is to encourage and disseminate publication of education related research. An Award will only be made when a candidate demonstrates sufficient merit.

2. Education Research Group Faculty Travel Award

An Award of $600 is to be presented to a Faculty member who has an abstract accepted for an Education Research Group sponsored session. Current membership of the Education Research Group is a requirement for participants to be considered for an Award. The Group Chairperson of the relevant meeting will advise the assessors of the identity of the participating Faculty.

The purpose of the Awards is to encourage and disseminate publication of education related research. An Award will only be made when a candidate demonstrates sufficient merit. Current officers of the Education Research Group will not be eligible for an award.

For both Awards, the criteria for judging the conference presentations are as listed below. Each assessor will utilize a three point scale (strongly agree / moderately agree / disagree) to judge each criterion.

  1. Research design: Does it fit the aims/research questions and was it conducted appropriately?
  2. Analysis: Are the techniques appropriate and used correctly?
  3. Conclusions: Are they justified by the results?
  4. Educational Significance: Can the findings be applied to other dental education settings?
  5. Presentation: Did the presenter communicate clearly? Did the slides/poster clearly communicate the findings? Did the presenter clearly answer the questions?

Candidates should indicate that they wish to be considered for an award at the point of abstract submission. Please send inquiries to:
