The AAP Foundation will give $436,500 in scholarships, grants and awards in 2015 alone. Since our inception in 1990, we have given away more than $4.5 million to periodontists who wish to pursue careers in education, and to those periodontists who truly excel at what they do. In 2015, we're celebrating our 25th anniversary, and hope that you'll join us in commemorating 25 years of keeping periodontology at the cutting edge of scientific dentistry.
