ADAF Dental Student Scholarship Program for 2018

Application period open for ADA Foundation Dental Student Scholarships valued at $20,000 each.

Second-year dental students may apply by Friday, Feb. 2, 2018 for an ADA Foundation Dental Student Scholarship. The ADAF will award up to seven scholarships valued at $20,000 each. These scholarships are designed to recognize dental students who are strong academically and who demonstrate outstanding promise in leadership, public service/volunteerism, and/or research.

Eligible applicants must be a U.S. citizen; must be enrolled full-time in the second year of study at the time of application in a U.S. CODA-accredited dental school; and must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.25 based on a 4.0 scale (or a Pass / Satisfactory). View the complete guidelines and apply for a scholarship here. Please note that students may apply directly, rather than requesting that their college apply on their behalf as in previous years. Students must apply through the ADA Foundation’s online system, which requires creating an account and login. Questions? Contact Tracey Schilligo at
