ADEA Member Institutions are also eligible for significant monetary recognition for research and work with new procedures.

Also, through the ADEAGies Foundation ADEA provides financial support for dental education, research, and leadership. The Foundation confers the annual Gies Awards, bringing recognition to outstanding individuals and institutional leaders in global oral health and oral health education.

ADEA is pleased to offer several new awards for 2014 in support of leadership development, academic advancement, and student research. See the links below for more information.
