Scholarships and Student Leadership Awards
The Delta Dental Foundation awards scholarships and Student Leadership Awards to students who demonstrate excellent academic and leadership skills, and who exhibit a passion for dentistry.
Eight students from each dental school in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana are awarded a Delta Dental Foundation scholarship and one graduating dental student from each school is awarded a Student Leadership Award. Recipients are selected by the dean of their school of dentistry.
Starting in 2013, Delta Dental launched the Delta Dental Foundation Dental Hygiene Scholarship program for students at select schools in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana who are pursuing a degree in dental hygiene.
Since 1980, the Delta Dental Foundation has awarded more than 800 scholarships and Student Leadership Awards. Many of our past scholarship and leadership award recipients have reached out to improve oral health care in needy communities around the world and in their own communities.
