New grant program spurs international volunteerism
March 19, 2018
The ADA Foundation is launching a new grant program for international dental volunteer projects, designed to support established U.S.-based nonprofit organizations that are working to improve access to oral health care in underserved communities outside the U.S.
The application period opens March 20, in honor of FDI World Oral Health Day, and the deadline for submissions is May 1.
Eligible organizations must have a demonstrable three-year history and lead dental trips of at least one week duration per year. Trips may be service-oriented, dental education/oral health-oriented, or combination projects. About four grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded.
