The CAE Endowment Fund is committed to assisting the dental profession in its quest for continuous improvement in endodontic care. The CAE will be awarding research grants to support meritorious research proposals that seek to advance basic scientific and applied clinical knowledge in the area of endodontics. 

What is the intent of the Endowment Fund? 

The CAE wishes to support promising research conducted by Canadian endodontic residents. The awarding of a grant will obligate the grantee to present their final research findings at a CAE meeting. 

What are appropriate areas for investigation? 

Any investigation relevant to endodontic care is appropriate. 

Who can apply? 

Individuals are eligible if they are currently enrolled in a Canadian postdoctoral endodontic program and a current CAE member in good standing.  Priority will be given to student members but Academic members are encouraged to apply.
