Dental School Financial Aid?

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.


Hey Guys!

I just found an ADA survey which contains a variety of helpful statistics on dental schools; the one that interested me the most is how one figure shows how dental schools actually seems to offer a considerable amount of scholarships and grants. Am I just mis-reading the figure or is there hope for applicants like me who could really benefit from some financial aid.

The survey is linked below, it's an excel sheet.

My school has over $200K in scholarships. However it's broken down to something like 60 different ones, the largest being 5K and the smallest is $500 or 1K. Any scholarship is nice, but it's not much compared to the $80K worth of student loans I took out.
