Fourth-year dental students receive financial support through this fund.
The Class of 1949 Endowment, established in 1990 by the School of Dental Medicine Class of 1949, provides annual financial aid to a fourth-year student who is well-rounded and places in the top one-third of their class in academic standing.
Students are recommended to the Dean of the School of Dental Medicine by a committee of faculty, administration and staff from the school.
The School of Dental Medicine is a pioneer in the field—a research titan, and a shining example of the best of dental education, community engagement and global leadership. Maintaining our lead is expensive. Increasing our lead requires a $43 million investment, more visionary donors and additional philanthropic support. But the payoff is immense: With your help, our world-class research, education, clinical facilities and experiences will better prepare our students, redefine and strengthen dental medicine, and improve the health of countless millions of people.
