Colgate CARE Program


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 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

We are excited to share that the Colgate CARE Program will be accepting applications for the new cycle starting July 15, 2020 through our Online Application System. The CARE Program Online Application System will be accessible through this website, so please bookmark this page and visit us again in July.
