The available awards are coordinated by the Awards Committee of the Educational and Research Foundation for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The AAFPRS Foundation Awards Program was instituted to:
- Recognize research completed and previously presented at an Academy meeting; and
- Recognize members who have contributed to the Academy and to their communities.
The Roe & Gillies Awards are automatically selected from papers submitted by current fellows in the AAFPRS Foundation Fellowship Program. These papers are due Feb. 1 or the first business day thereafter.
