MDAF Dental Scholarship Program

The Foundation awards three $5,000 scholarships to dental students each academic year. They are competitive and are based upon leadership and achievement. The scholarship program is an initiative of the MDA Foundation in cooperation with the Missouri Dental Association.

Awarding dental scholarships to Missouri-based students ​is a hallmark of the MDA Foundation. To date 87 scholarships totaling $2​61,000 in support have been awarded since 1999. Congratulations to this year’s recipients.
