DENTAL STUDENTS:  Up to $1,000 annual conference reimbursement PLUS bonus scholarship check

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 school can be very 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 students’ ability to participate in the Annual Conference, the Academy will again be offering the THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE SCHOLARSHIP.  

Dental students awarded this scholarship will be reimbursed up to $1,000 for conference expenses incurred while attending the 2016 Annual Conference (August 12-13, 2016) including: registration, airfare, rental car (or mileage for own car), hotel, and meals.  This is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the benefits of coming to the Annual Conference without financial stress attached! The $1,000 can also go to cover expenses for spouse and/or children who attend the conference. NEW THIS YEAR:  Students will also be awarded a bonus scholarship check at the conference. **Student MUST be present at conference to be awarded the bonus scholarship.
