EXCITING NEWS FROM OUR EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION!
This year we are awarding $20,000 in scholarships!
Twenty thousand dollars to deserving students!
$20,000 for continuing education – WOW!
Our members can be very proud of this special program that we sponsor on an annual basis. This year, in addition to the money the Foundation raises for awards, we are fortunate to be able to award additional scholarships because of the generosity of our members. Seven (7) donated and career specific awards have been made possible by the generosity of the following:
- The $5,000 Anthony Emma Scholarship Award donated by Encore Dental for a student concentrating their studies in the areas of science and or math.
- A $1,500 Princeton Dental Scholarship which is being given to a student going to school for health related studies.
