Call for Applications: ADEA Enid A. Neidle Scholar-in-Residence Program

 Permanent link   All Posts

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.

The deadline for the 2018 ADEA Enid A. Neidle Scholar-in-Residence Program for Women is Nov. 1, 2017. The list of past scholars and their project descriptions is available here. For more information or to apply for the 2017 ADEA Enid A. Neidle Scholar-in-Residence Program, visit us.
