Scholarship Recipients

The Michigan Dental Association Foundation has announced its student scholarship awardees for 2014-15.

The MDA Foundation provides much-needed financial support to students in Michigan enrolled in dental, dental hygiene, and dental assisting programs. As the cost of dental education continues to increase, scholarships help to defray expenses for those students who qualify, based on academic record, community service, leadership, and financial need.

Each year the MDA Foundation awards its Robert Mitus Scholarship, John G. Nolen Scholarship, George L. Bletsas Scholarship, and Bill Schumann Scholarship to outstanding students.

The students in our schools today are the dental professionals and leaders of tomorrow. Financial support now can help build a lifetime of success. The MDA Foundation is able to continue these effective dental student programs, thanks to your generous support.
