Scholarship Priorities

  • Alumni Scholarship - Your gift to the Alumni Scholarship fund recruits the best students and creates a legacy of giving that we can all be proud of while simultaneously building the largest endowed scholarship at the School of Dentistry. The alumni scholarship emphasizes the close-knit, personal community of U of M Dental School grads. Created by alumni to show their support to students from day 1, this scholarship shows students that alumni are here from the beginning, and will be throughout their dental education, on through graduation. Award amounts will increase as the endowment grows. The first award amount was $10,000.
  • Dental School Scholarships Fund - Your gift to the School of Dentistry Scholarships Fund makes an immediate impact by providing scholarship awards to any student within the School of Dentistry. Award amounts vary depending on donations, however typical award amounts are $5,000 to $10,000 per student.
