Department Grants

The Foundation provides a matching grant to ensure endodontics is taught by endodontists! View the option below available to CODA-accredited endodontic programs.


Endowed Faculty Matching Grant

This grant strengthens endodontic education by ensuring that endodontics is taught by endodontists and that the specialty is highly visible and well represented in dental schools.

Endowed Faculty Matching Grants are open to any U.S. or Canadian dental school that is accredited by or has a reciprocal agreement with the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association and that is seeking to endow a permanent academic or research position in endodontics. Any institution that has been funded with the Endowed Faculty Matching Grant cannot reapply for another 10 years following grant acceptance.

Requests will be considered for up to $100,000. Departments are eligible to apply when they have 60 percent of the money required to fund the faculty position, in hand (minus the $100,000 Opportunity Grant). For example, if the total funding needed is $500,000, applicants should have already raised at least 60 percent of $400,000 or $240,000.

Grants will be paid upon the institution’s completion of agreed upon fundraising goals. In the event that the institution is unable to endow a faculty position in endodontics, the Foundation must be notified within 14 days of that decision. Any portion of the grant that has been paid must be refunded to the Foundation with interest at the prime rate within 30 days.

Review the most recent Endowed Faculty Matching Grant Guidelines and Application and plan to apply. There are two submission deadlines (January 1 and August 1) each year.
