Dental assistants groups seek applicants for new scholarships
The American Dental Assistants Association and the Dental Assisting National Board have launched a new scholarship program to help dental assistants turn their professional development plans into reality.
The ADAA/DANB Scholarship will be awarded to dental assistants who demonstrate a strong commitment to career growth and lifelong learning. The winner or winners will be able to use the scholarship money for professional activities, such as continuing dental education courses, DANB exams or certification, some expenses associated with the ADAA Fellowship or Mastership programs, or registration for a dental conference, among other possible activities.
To be considered for the scholarship, applicants should download and complete the application and submit a letter of intent, along with any required documentation. The scholarship is open to all paid ADAA members and student members in good standing.
Applications will be accepted through Aug. 31, and the winners will be announced at the 2013 ADAA Annual Session in October. To learn more about the scholarship requirements and deadlines, download the application at www.dentalassistant.org or www.danb.org.
