Current Opportunities for American Dental Association Foundation (ADAF)

Allied Dental Student Scholarship Program

Opportunity Type: Scholarship
Application Deadline: March 14, 2019
Description: The Allied Dental Scholarships provided by the ADA Foundation support the Education mission pillar of the ADAF. ADAF Allied Dental Scholarships are offered annually to help dental assisting, dental hygiene, and dental laboratory technology students defray a part of their professional educational expenses. 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 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.
