Scholarships

The Iowa Dental Foundation was formed as a non-profit public foundation by members of the Iowa Dental Association to benefit the general public.

One of the specific purposes of the Foundation is the granting of scholarships to individuals seeking education or further education in the fields of dentistry, dental hygiene, dental assisting, or dental lab technician in an Iowa accredited program. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of character and financial need of the applicant and will be awarded without regard to race, creed, color, sex, national origin, or physical handicap.
