Student Loan Grant application deadline near

The CDA Foundation is now accepting applications for its Student Loan Repayment Grant. The CDA Foundation awards selected recent dental school/specialty graduates with the Student Loan Repayment Grant to help repay their educational loan of up to $35,000 per year for a maximum of $105,000 over three years in exchange for a commitment by recipients to care for the underserved.

The deadline to apply is July 31.

Since 2002, the program has enabled 15 dentists to embrace their dream of working in public health and helped more than 75,000 patients in underserved communities receive more than $20.5 million in care. And, virtually all of those dentists have remained not only in public health but in the communities where they first served.
