Smile Marketing's Bi-Annual Dental Scholarship

Scholarship BadgeThe dental field is an important and fulfilling profession. But a career in dentistry often means spending a significant amount of money on dental school. That’s why Smile Marketing offers a $500 scholarship twice a year to students working toward their goal of becoming a dentist.

If you are currently enrolled in an accredited dental school or pre-dental program, you can be eligible for the $500 Smile Marketing scholarship. Simply submit a 500-word essay that answers the question: “What role do you believe the Internet will play in your dental career?”

Twice each year, Smile Marketing awards a scholarship to the best dental essay, determined by our panel of dental marketing specialists. Our judges will review your submission, and the winner will be awarded a $500 cash scholarship and their essay will be published on the Smile Marketing blog. See last year's winning essay here.
