DR. BILL SCHUMANN SCHOLARSHIP
The Dr. Bill Schumann Scholarship is awarded to a fourth-year dental student attending the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry and who is planning to practice in the state of Michigan.
MDA Insurance & Financial Group made the funds for this scholarship available in honor of the late Dr. Bill Schumann. A 1952 graduate of the University of Detroit School of Dentistry, Dr. Schumann practiced in Redford until 1988, but many remember him as a longtime faculty member at the UDM School of Dentistry. He was also a lawyer, having obtained his juris doctorate from the Detroit College of Law in 1965. Dr. Schumann served on the MDA’s insurance committee beginning in 1986 and eventually served as its chair. He then served as chair of MDA Insurance & Financial Group from 1996 until 2002, leading the organization during a period of rapid growth. Dr. Schumann passed away in 2005 and this scholarship honors his contributions to MDA Insurance and all of organized dentistry.
The recipient for the 2011-12 academic year is:
