The cost of attending dental school is rising each year. The average in-state tuition cost per year in the United States is $42,000 while the average cost of attending a private dental school can be as high as $76,000 per year. The costs of attending dental school should not be a barrier for any student seeking a dental education. 

The Contributing to Smiles Scholarship was started in memory of a dedicated dentist who ran his own business for 30 years. This scholarship was created to financially support dental students who are passionate about helping their communities through dentistry. 

This scholarship is meant for an undergraduate or graduate student who is planning to attend, or is already enrolled, in dental school. 

Any undergraduate student who is majoring in dentistry, or any graduate student who is pursuing a dental degree, may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us why you want to go into the field of dentistry and how you will use your career to give back to your community.
