Each year the British Orthodontic Society Scholarship Committee will receive all applications on behalf of the Foundation and agree the awards. This committee comprises orthodontists representing a wide range of interests within the British Orthodontic Society. They are nominated by the constituent groups of the Society and will appoint panels of the highest quality to review all applications. All applicants will receive a report and advice from the Scholarship committee. Additionally, the BOS Foundation and Scholarship Committees may announce annually a research emphasis to encourage the submission of proposals relevant to specific topics. A degree of preference will be given to meritorious proposals which address the announced research emphasis.
The council of the British Orthodontic Society will be responsible for approving the recommendations of the Scholarship committee. The Foundation will publish an annual report on the funds raised, the awards made, the results of the research supported and the direct teaching benefits.
