Educational Grant Posters

The purpose of the World Federation of Orthodontists is to advance the art and science of orthodontics throughout the world. In keeping with that purpose, the British Orthodontic Society at the 8th International Congress decided it wanted to inform, inspire and unite delegates from as many places over the globe as possible.

So for the 35 delegates chosen,  an Educational Grants scheme meant that their travel, accommodation and congress fees were covered enabling them to attend the 8th IOC - an experience it is hoped provided a lasting legacy to the developing world being represented.

Following a competitive application process requiring personal statements plus an abstract illustrating personal work and research suitable for poster display at the 8th IOC, decisions were made on who the recipients would be in early 2015. This was done so arrangements for travel, especially visa applications, could be made in plenty of time. Finally on the morning of Monday 28th September the Congress Chair, Jonathan Sandler, officially welcomed the Grant Winners along with a number of others whose efforts had made it possible for the delegates to attend.

A WFO selection committee has chosen a number of these posters to high-light the work being done around the world.
