The ADEA Enid A. Neidle
Scholar-in-Residence Program for Women is a two- to three-month (cumulative)
residency experience at the ADEA headquarters in Washington, D.C. The program
allows women faculty to devote focused time to a scholarly project related to
gender-related issues. The scholar’s time in Washington is flexible in order to
accommodate her professional and personal responsibilities and commitments.
The Scholar receives a $15,000
stipend to support housing, travel and other costs associated with her time in
residence at ADEA headquarters.
While in Washington, the
scholar will have access to ADEA leadership, staff and data and policy
resources. In addition to receiving an orientation to ADEA headquarters, the
scholar may take advantage of the breadth of learning opportunities in
Washington, including a host of health care associations, government agencies
such as the National Institutes of Health, Capitol Hill and the national
Smithsonian museums. In concert with ADEA staff, the scholar schedules time in
Washington to work on her project throughout the calendar year. Scholars are
encouraged to submit project findings for publication in the Journal of Dental Education and other
peer-reviewed journals. Recognizing that the publication process usually
extends beyond the fellowship term, the scholar is required to designate a
mentor at her home institution who will provide guidance and serve as a
resource during and after the scholar’s time at ADEA headquarters.
ADEA members who are full-time,
women faculty at member institutions are eligible. Junior faculty and dental
hygiene faculty are encouraged to apply.
