Grants for individual or group faculty/staff development are available from the Office of Professional Development. Programs, projects, and activities that are college focused (meet the need of the entire school rather than a segment) and facilitate achievement of our mission, will be given priority.
Funding is available on a competitive basis for presentations at professional meetings, subject to eligibility criteria. All faculty, staff, and administrators (who do not control their own budgets) of NYU College of Dentistry may apply for funding.
Individuals must adhere to University travel guidelines, i.e. every effort should be made to procure the best possible rates for airfare and hotel accommodations.
To be reimbursed for approved expenses, grant recipients must submit all original and itemized receipts to their department administrator within 60 days of conference attendance and prior to August 1st. Recipient is reimbursed only up to the approved amount. Recipients may only use their funds for the purpose for which they were awarded. If funds are not used, they will be returned to the pool for the next funding cycle. Funding decisions are final.
All faculty grant recipients will be required to deliver their presentations to the NYU Dentistry community at an Faculty and Staff Develoment event prior to their professional meeting.
OPD provides program participants with certification of their attendance at eligible programs. Continuing dental education units are offered in conjunction with the Linhart Continuing Education Program.
You must pre-register (before midnight of the day prior to event) and sign in at the event for the program you want to attend in i-learn in order to receive CE credit. (See instructions below)
