CDSA International Research Presentation Awards

The Canadian Dental Specialties Association supports up to four student international research presentation awards each year. This award recognizes student excellence in research at a Canadian dental specialty training program.

Award Criteria: The award is given to students who are undertaking dental specialty training in a recognized Canadian dental specialty, and who will be presenting their oral research, as lead authors, at an international scientific conference.

The value of the award will be variable, covering travel expenses up to a maximum of $1000 CAD for each student according to CDSA travel policy and procedures.

Selection Criteria: The Canadian Dental Specialties Association Board of Directors will make selections based on the following criteria:

  • Originality: Does the abstract make a contribution to the state of knowledge in the dental specialty?
  • Quality: Does the abstract meet minimum scientific requirements (i.e. clear objectives, appropriate methods, reporting of results, and valid conclusions)?

Deadline for application: Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
