ICD-WUDAA Scholarship Program


  • $2,500


  • The ICD-WUDAA Scholarship Program offers annual scholarships to dental students. This program demonstrates concern about the high cost of dental education and its negative impact on the career choices of graduating dentists by doing as much as possible for individual students and raising awareness of the serious issue of dental school student debt.

  • WUDAA established a dental student scholarship program years ago after the Washington University Dental School, St. Louis, closed during the 1990s. Whereas both ICD and WUDAA have established programs in support of dental students and high-quality dental education, they have agreed to collaborate in the continuation and future growth of the existing WUDAA Scholarship Program
