Scholarships Sign

CHICAGO – The American Dental Association Foundation (ADAF) recently announced the winners of the 2013 ADA Foundation Allied Dental Student Scholarship Program.The ADAF awarded scholarships of $1,000 each to 30 students from across the nation who are studying dental hygiene, dental assisting, and dental laboratory technology. The goal of this program is to facilitate the education of academically gifted students, which in turn helps to foster the public's oral health.

The ADAF awards annual scholarships to academically gifted studentsto help defray a portion of the cost of their professional education. Accredited allied dental schools are invited to submit one application from each of its allied dental programs. The ADA Foundation considers one application for each program from each accredited school, submitted by the school on behalf of its selected student.

For example, if a school offers both an accredited dental hygiene program and an accredited dental assisting program, the ADA Foundation will consider one Dental Hygiene Scholarship application and one Dental Assisting Scholarship application for students selected by that school. Any application sent directly to the ADA Foundation by a student who was not selected by his or her school will not be considered. Later this summer, the ADAF will announce the deadline to submit applications for the 2013-2014 Allied Dental Student Scholarship Program.
