The National Indian Health Board invites Tribal Nations and Tribal health organizations to complete an application to sponsor a dental therapy student for a scholarship opportunity to support dental therapy students for the 2021-2022 academic year. Entities sponsoring more than one student should submit one total application.

Three $10,000 scholarships are available to enrolled or accepted dental therapy students to support tuition costs of a dental therapy education program. Support for additional costs related to the student’s dental therapy education may be considered. Scholarship applications are reviewed by a committee of public health professionals. Applications are due on June 11 and recipients will be notified by June 30, 2021. This opportunity is part of NIHB’s Tribal Oral Health Initiative.
