Click here to apply for the Humanitarian Service Scholarship

Scholarship details:  The Humanitarian Service Scholarship is designed to assist a dental or hygiene student in their last year of school, or a newly graduated dentist or hygienist, with the opportunity to experience the joy of service by participating in a humanitarian trip with one of our Friends of the Academy.  This scholarship includes a $2,500.00 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, Academy Secretary, 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 Academy of LDS Dentists.

Eligibility requirements:  Applicant must be a dental or hygiene student in their last year of schooling OR a newly graduated (2019, 2020, 2021) dentist or hygienist.
