IDF Awards Tuition Grant to Kayla Erps

Kayla Erps HeadshotThe Iowa Dental Foundation is proud to recognize University of Iowa College of Dentistry Class of 2021 student Kayla Erps with the $5,000 IDF Tuition Grant as she completes her final year of dental school.
Upon being awarded the tuition grant, Kayla said: "After dental school, I wish to pursue a residency that focuses on serving patients with special health care needs. In the future I would love to create a dental program in partnership with the Special Olympics of Iowa. This organization has formed and fostered many friendships for me over the past nineteen years as a volunteer and I hope to pay it forward! The Iowa Dental Foundation tuition grant generously lessens my financial concern. I will be able to dive into my career goals and serve children and adults with disabilities immediately after graduation!"
