Healthcare Scholarship: American Dental Education Association (ADEA)

Overview of the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) Scholarships

The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) grants several scholarships, awards and fellowships to exceptional students in the field of dentistry and dental alliance studies.

The ADEA/Sunstar Americas, Inc./Jack Bresch Student Legislative Internship is a stipend-supported internship lasting six weeks. Recipients have the opportunity to intern at the ADEA Policy Center in Washington, D.C., at the Advocacy and Governmental Relations portfolio. The internship is open to full-time predoctoral, allied or advanced dental students, residents or fellows.

The ADEA/Crest Oral-B Laboratories Scholarships for Dental Hygiene Students Pursuing Academic Careers are awarded to two dental hygiene students at the baccalaureate or graduate level of study. The scholarship also covers $1,500 toward tuition and school-related fees. The ADEA/Crest Oral-B Laboratories Scholarships for Predoctoral Dental Students Pursuing Academic Careers covers $4,500 toward tuition and fees for dental students enrolled in a predoctoral program at an ADEA member institution. The scholarship is awarded to two students each year. Both scholarships also include a $500 stipend to subsidize attendance of the ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition.

The ADEA Preventative Dentistry Scholarship provides $2,500 towards tuition and related fees to twelve predoctoral dental students who demonstrate a strong interest in preventative dentistry. Applicants must be nominated by the dean of the dental school, and no more than three students may be nominated, per school.

The ADEA/Sigma Phi Alpha Linda DeVore Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship, awarded each year to one part- or full-time student in dental hygiene, education or public health. Students may be enrolled in baccalaureate, master or doctoral degree programs.

The ADEA/TheraBreath Student Research Fellowship consists of a $2,500 stipend toward research on xerostomia and/or halitosis. The fellowship is given to four full-time dental or dental hygiene students each year.

All of the programs require that applicants submit an application form, a personal statement, current curriculum vitae and two confidential letters of recommendation. Depending on the particular scholarship, you may also need to submit current transcripts and/or a letter of recommendation from your school’s dean. To qualify, applicants must also be individual members of the ADEA.

Applications to the internship program are accepted on a rolling basis. The fellowship program deadline is November 18th. All other scholarships accept applications until November 3rd in 2014, though dates may change slightly from one year to the next. The application materials are typically made available the first week of October.
