While pursuing a professional degree in dentistry typically means taking on a lot of debt, scholarships to encourage dental education are tremendously scarce.
Between the Dental Admission Test, school applications, and dental school tuition, dental students are typically left with few options other than to take on substantial student loans to complete their education which is often stressful and can deter budding future dentists from pursuing their dreams.
To support ambitious students pursuing their dream in dentistry, the Precious K. Hollins Dental School Scholarship exists and will be awarded to two promising pre-dental students. A successful applicant must hold at least a 3.0 GPA and be able to demonstrate a strong interest and evidence in a future career as a Dentist.
The first will be awarded to a pre-dental student who has accepted a seat in an incoming class of a U.S. accredited dental school, transitioning into their first year as a dental student.
The second will be awarded to a pre-dental student who is currently in the application phase of their dental journey.
