Foundation Grants

Supporting endodontic education and the individuals who strengthen it is one of the Foundation for Endodontics’ most important roles. Please make sure you are taking advantage of what the Foundation has to offer you. Review all opportunities on the Foundation’s Educator Grants page.

NOTE: The Foundation’s Board recently reviewed its funding initiatives to make sure each opportunity was in line with the Foundation’s mission. Beginning in January 2018, some alterations will affect the structure, availability and processing of some of the grants that are currently offered. The changes will not only allow the Foundation to offer funding to more individuals, the new structure will allow for greater flexibility in their use by educators like you. Watch for information regarding the revised grant opportunities and requirements, set to be released in January.

Resident Research Projects

A designated community has been established in AAE Connection to house resident members’ survey-based research projects. Residents will pay $50 to participate in the program and approved surveys will be posted to the community on their behalf by AAE Staff. The community is populated with Active, Educator, FDHS and Life members that will receive an email notification with a request for their participation as new surveys are posted.
