Colgate-Palmolive is proud to offer the Colgate Award for Research Excellence (CARE). The CARE program is a 1-year research grant ($30,000.00 USD) to foster the development of first-time-in-career (0 to 5 years) academic oral health or dental researchers. The goal of the program is to advance oral healthcare therapies in the realm of basic science, translational science, and clinical care.

In order to be eligible to apply for the CARE grant, you must:

  • have a primary appointment as a full-time faculty at an accredited dental school in the USA or Canada

  • be in the first five years of your initial academic appointment

  • have additional sources of financial support for the proposed study

In order to apply, you must first register and create a profile by clicking "Register" in the top right corner of this page. The system will then guide you through the application process step by step. You can prepare, access, edit and save your partially completed application as often as you like before you are ready to apply. Please note that once you have submitted your application, you will not be able to make further changes or submit additional documents!
