While pursuing a degree in dental medicine 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 dental professionals from pursuing their dreams.
To support ambitious students pursuing their dentistry dream, the Precious K. Hollins Dental School Scholarship exists and will be awarded to two students who are passionate about contributing to public health through dentistry.
To be eligible, you must be an undergraduate or graduate student who is currently applying to dental school, be engaged in your community, and hold at least a 3.0 GPA
To apply, please write a detailed answer to each of the essay questions below. Please keep responses under 250 words for each question.
