The AGA Academy of Educators recently surveyed past grant recipients from 2013-2017 for feedback on the impact of their grant awards. An overwhelming majority said receiving the Academy grant positively impacted their career. Former Academy grant recipients include members of AGA Future Leaders, Women’s Leadership, Young Delegates, numerous AGA committees and subcommittees, and DDSEP® 8 contributors. Additionally, 71 percent said they have held an academic appointment since receiving their grant.
