Dental hygiene student “Annual Conference” Scholarship applications accepted

March 1st through May 15th, 2017. 

Free conference registration and $500 scholarship check

DENTAL HYGIENE STUDENTS:  Free annual conference registration PLUS a $500 scholarship check awarded at the conference held on August 18-19, 2017 in Provo, Utah.

Education is a key focus of the Academy, and  the Annual Conference, sponsored by the Academy each year in August at BYU, is an excellent way to receive top-notch dental education, while developing friendships and enjoying fellowship with other members of the Academy in an environment which embraces the standards and values of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Dental hygiene school can be expensive, creating financial difficulties for students in many areas, including being able to participate in additional educational opportunities, which can be very rewarding and life-changing for students.  In order to facilitate dental hygiene students’ ability to participate in the Academy of LDS Dentists Annual Conference, the Academy will be offering dental hygiene students an ANNUAL CONFERENCE SCHOLARSHIP.  

Dental hygiene students awarded this scholarship will receive free conference registration and be awarded a $500 scholarship check at the conference. **Student MUST be present at conference to be awarded the scholarship check. Please check schedules before applying and make sure you can attend the conference.

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

DEADLINE for DENTAL HYGIENE STUDENT scholarship applications  is MAY 15, 2017.  Select members of the Executive Committee will be evaluating with care, each application.  Notifications to recipients will be made by June 15, 2017.
