Pankey announces student scholarship contest
Key Biscayne, Fla.—The L.D. Pankey Dental Foundation is sponsoring a video scholarship competition for dental students, "to support the dentists of tomorrow and encourage a culture of lifelong learning," according to a March 6 news release.
Recipients receive complimentary registration to Pankey's Sept. 19-21 annual meeting in Orlando and a stipend for travel, and will be paired with a mentor throughout the conference. The deadline to apply is May 24.
To apply, students must be in academic good standing and enrolled in an accredited dental school. They are required to submit an application form along with a video detailing why they chose to pursue a career in dentistry and explaining their personal practice philosophy.
Two additional rules apply:
• The scholarship (with a value of about $1,300) must be used in the same calendar year in which it is awarded.
• In the event the winner cannot attend the annual meeting, the selection committee may award the scholarship to another applicant.
Applications should be sent to Nicole Berman at firstname.lastname@example.org via DropBox or YouSendIt by the May 24 deadline. For more information, contact Ms. Berman at 1-305-428-5500.
