The Canadian Dental Specialties Association (CDSA) supports up to two student awards each year. This award recognizes student excellence in research at a Canadian dental specialty training program.
Award Criteria (Eligibility)
The award is given to students undertaking dental specialty training in a recognized Canadian dental specialty, and who have been accepted for an Oral Presentation at a national or international scientific conference.
The value of the award will be up to a maximum of $500 CAD for each student, according to CDSA travel policy and procedures.
A student may receive the International Research Presentation Award only once during their lifetime.
The CDSA International Research Presentation Award Sub-Committee will review all applications and make recommendations based on the criteria below. All eligible applications will then be voted on by the Board of Directors, using a grading scale.
- Eligibility: If you meet the Award Criteria you will be considered for the CDSA International Research Presentation Award Award.
- Originality: Does the abstract contribute 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)?
There will be two application submission deadlines: January 1 and June 30.
Applications for the award will also be considered for Oral Presentations already delivered at a national or international conference within 6 months before or 6 months after each application deadline.
