Carl Rieder/Newport Harbor Academy of Dentistry

ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP

By offering deserving dental students monetary grants for quality scientific presentations to the membership, the Academy seeks to instill clinical and leadership skills in a new generation of dentists who demonstrate the following qualities:

  • Professionalism, leadership, strong ethics and good communication skills;
  • Excellence in the art of dentistry and the ability to convey that superior quality to others;
  • A noteworthy academic and volunteer work record;
  • Substantial financial need and evidence that the student has made a concerted effort to assist himself or herself.

Three students selected by the scholarship committee each deliver a 10-minute presentation on which the membership votes to determine the winner.  Currently, the winner receives $10,000 and the two finalists $2,500 each.  In addition, the winner is awarded a one-year membership in the Academy, a singular reward that offers an extraordinary educational and mentoring opportunity.  We salute our generous donors for enriching these students' lives while, at the same time, supporting dental education.
