The UKCD Alumni Association Board of Directors Challenges You!

 

Students enrolled at UK College of Dentistry face an intense curriculum and rigorous clinic schedule. However, one of their hardest challenges is dealing with the cost of dental school. Past graduates may remember the expense of their own education as manageable. Unfortunately, many of today’s students are burdened with student debt prior to starting post-graduate school. Between the demands of UKCD’s didactic curriculum and clinical work, there is little time to also carry a part-time job which might at least help address living expenses.This financial burden not only prevents students from enrolling and remaining at UKCD, but also limits their choices following dental school as they consider the additional costs of continuing their education to become a specialist or taking a loan to start a private oral health practice, especially in a rural area. 

 

The College of Dentistry Scholarship provides a vehicle for alumni to join as one in encouraging students to consider the dental profession and pursue their dream. For the 2019-2020 school year UKCD Scholarship funding was provided to17 first-year students, with students receiving awards to assist with their education.

 

The UKCD Alumni Board of Directors wishes to challenge every alum to give $25 for every year that they have been out of school.

 

As our scholarship fund grows so too will the number of scholarships we can give to deserving students.  UKCD has given a lot to all of us over the years so please consider giving back to UKCD on September 16.”

–Dr. Cliff Lowdenback (‘03), UKCD Alumni Board President

 

Please help encourage the next generation of dentists to join the oral health field by making a gift to support the College of Dentistry Scholarship.
