To expose future dentists to careers in research, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) offers an outstanding summer training opportunity for dental students.  The NIDCR Summer Dental Student Award is designed to give talented dental students hands-on research experience and exposure to the latest advances in oral health research.  Selected candidates are assigned to mentors who conduct research in the students' areas of interest.    Participation in the program may result in presentation of research findings at a scientific meeting or co-authorship of scientific publications.

The NIDCR provides a competitive stipend for all summer researchers.  Acceptance of this reward requires a minimum eight-week commitment.  The nominating dental school must agree to support air or ground transportation for their students.  Although housing is not supplied by NIDCR, student housing resource guides are provided.
