HUMANITARIAN SERVICE Scholarship Application;

Applications now accepted through April 15, 2024

https://ensignacademyofdentistry.com/2024HumanitarianScholarship

Scholarship details:  The Humanitarian Service Scholarship is designed to assist a dental or dental hygiene student in their last year of school, or a newly graduated dentist or dental hygienist, with the opportunity to experience the joy of service by participating in a humanitarian trip with one of our Friends of the Academy organizations.  This scholarship includes a $3000.00 reward to be paid to the trip organizer of the awardee’s choice, with fees to be put toward the cost of the humanitarian trip.  Dr. Terry Ferrell, Past Academy President, found that the experiences he had serving during a humanitarian trip as a new dentist changed his perspective and focus toward a desire to serve.  He believes that these experiences changed his life for the better.  We hope that providing financial assistance in the form of this humanitarian scholarship will allow others to experience that same joy in service and will encourage the recipient to become actively involved as a member of the Ensign Academy of Dentistry with a desire to serve, mentor and educate others.

Eligibility requirements:  Applicant must be a dental or dental hygiene student in their last year of schooling OR a newly graduated (2022, 2023, 2024) dentist or dental hygienist.

Recipient must agree to share their experience and insights from their trip with the Academy membership at the conference in 2025 with a short presentation and slide show.  Further details will be given to the recipient. 

The Scholarship Review Committee will evaluate each application with careful and thoughtful contemplation. Recipients of scholarship awards will be notified by July 15, 2024.

** Criteria will be based on merit, financial need, and potential for contribution to the dental profession.
