Deadline set for Tarrson awards

September 09, 2019 Student leaders of dental school-based community outreach programs are encouraged to apply by Nov. 1 for an E. “Bud” Tarrson Dental School Student Community Leadership Award.

Awards of $5,000 to $20,000, depending on the number of applicants, will be made to dental schools/colleges. Only one application per school will be accepted.  

The Tarrson Awards annually highlight significant dental student outreach to vulnerable communities within the U.S.

Award funds must be expressly used to enhance student service learning and outreach to underserved populations.

Dental student groups enrolled in a predoctoral dental education program accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation, which are involved in an program to vulnerable communities within the U.S., are eligible.
