FDS Small Grants
The Faculty awards up to five small research grants up to the value of £10,000 each per year. These small grants are designed to meet research consumables costs for new or existing projects. These grants are designed primarily for early career researchers or lecturers and not for individuals who are well established in research.
FDS Research Fellowships
The Faculty will support research fellowships of up to two years duration to support clinical trainees to obtain research training. The proposed research should be of relevance to oral and dental research.
The Fellowship award will cover salary, on-costs and research consumable costs.
2017 is the 70th anniversary year of the Faculty of Dental Surgery. The theme of our anniversary celebrations will be innovations and the future of dentistry. This one-year fellowship will therefore be awarded for a research project that will support the development, implementation or evaluation of new innovations or emerging technologies applied to any aspect of dentistry.
