New Educator Development Grant Opportunity in 2018!
In an effort to provide greater flexibility for applicants and to ensure that educators are getting professional development opportunities that meet their individual needs, the Foundation for Endodontics has restructured some of the previous grants available to full-time educators. Effective January 1, 2018, the Foundation is now offering a new Full-time Educator Development Grant.
The new grant includes:
- One easy application
- More than six meetings/courses added to the list of opportunities eligible for funding
- Non-taxable reimbursement for the full amount of funds for the year
Foundation for Endodontics Endodontic Educator Fellowship Award
Please note the following award guidelines/eligibility update and application submission deadline change:
- Previously, individuals could apply during the first three years they were employed full time as an endodontic educator. Now individuals may apply during the first five years that they are employed full time as an endodontic educator, up to the end of their fifth year of employment.
- The deadline for application has moved from April 15 of each year to May 15 of each year.
