The IADR, AADOCR, and all Group/Network Communities will not be accessible from October 18-21, 2021 as IADR goes through site improvements. Thank you for your understanding. 

Deadline: January 17, 2022


The IADR is inviting applications from IADR members from Africa who have submitted an abstract for a travel award to support their attendance at the IADR General Session. The objective of this award program is to encourage African investigators to undertake research in any area related to pediatric oral health and present their findings at the IADR General Session & Exhibition. The award is sponsored by PDWG and consists of $1,000 to attend the IADR General Session.


  • IADR members who are also members of the IADR Pediatric Oral Health Research (POHR) group are eligible to apply for the travel award.
  • Entrants must have submitted an abstract to the POHR group to be considered for presentation at the IADR meeting for which the award is given.
  • In addition, entrants can receive an IADR PDWG Travel Award only once.
  • Applicants MUST be IADR and POHR members in good standing.
  • Applicants must present their research at the IADR meeting in order to be eligible to receive the travel award.


The Award will be given on the basis of general excellence in research related to pediatric oral health as demonstrated by the abstract, and oral or poster presentation (either face-to-face or online presentation).


To apply, you must select the IADR Pediatric Dentistry Working Group (PDWG) Travel Award when submitting your abstract to the POHR scientific group for the 2022 IADR/APR General Session & Exhibition by the January 17, 2021 deadline.



In 2022, one (1) award will be granted to a person from an African country. The winner of the award will receive US $1,000 for expenses to attend the IADR General Session & Exhibition.



All abstracts submitted for the IADR General Session are subject to peer review within the scientific groups of the IADR. Abstracts submitted by PDWG applicants to the POHR will be reviewed. The presenting author of the abstract judged to be of the highest scientific merit will be selected as the award winner. The award is accompanied by a cash prize and a certificate.



The Award is supported by a generous donation from the Pediatric Dentistry Working Group.
