Making a Difference in Education

Working Together...

Providing Over $2,000,000 in Educational Scholarships

The Oral Health Foundation of the Pierre Fauchard Academy believes that the promotion of oral health begins with the education of dental practitioners. The professional education of students is to, not only produce superb clinicians, but to also encourage and develop leadership qualities.

The Foundation offers student scholarships on an annual basis to all dental schools in the United States, Canada, and to selected dental schools worldwide. These dental schools are invited to participate at the beginning of their calendar year by selecting one student from the third year class who will continue into the fourth year. Selection characteristics include demonstrated potential for developing into an outstanding leader in the profession; above average academic qualifications; and the need for financial support. For more information regarding the Foundation's US and International Scholarship policies click here.

This Scholarship Program over the years has been an incredible success with total awards of over $2,000,000 to date. The great benefit that has been derived from this program is reflected in these young professionals and the fine examples they have set for their peers, in school and beyond.

MC900442141I am truly humbled and sincerely honored to be the recipient of the Foundation of the Pierre Fauchard Academy Student Scholarship.  Thank you for your generosity of a scholarship to aid in my dental education.  I understand the value of such a prestigious award and will strive daily to uphold the qualities of leadership and integrity within the dental profession.
