ADA Foundation offers scholarships to dental students

The ADA Foundation will award up to three scholarships worth at least $11,000 each to dental students in 2020.

The ADA Foundation Dental Student Scholarship Program is designed to recognize dental students who are strong academically and who demonstrate outstanding promise in leadership, public service/volunteerism and/or research. The scholarships are available to all dental students in accredited U.S. dental schools who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.

To be eligible for the scholarships, applicants must be enrolled full time in the second or third year of study at the time of application, have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.4 based on a 4.0 scale and demonstrate financial need.

The application period opens March 1 and closes at 11:59 p.m. on April 3.
