    Scholarship Review Process

    The Scholarships360 Research Team reviews all scholarships individually and strives to exclude any scholarship where any of the below applies:

    • The scholarship requires a fee to apply
    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
    • There is no available contact information

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    How to win scholarships for dental school

    As with other types of scholarships, many dental school scholarships require students to submit an essay as part of their application. Essays are the best way for you to demonstrate who you are on a more personal level. Remember that scholarship committees often read thousands of applications, so it’s crucial to write a compelling essay that stands out from the pack. 

    Luckily, we have a multitude of resources designed to help you do just that! These include guides on how to write a winning essay, how to write an essay about yourself, and how to start an essay and how to end an essay. Essays are one of the most important parts of your scholarship application, so give them the time and attention they deserve!

    For more advice on winning scholarships, check out our ultimate guide to finding and winning scholarships. And don’t forget about local scholarships, either. These scholarships are less competitive, which means they’re easier to win! Our guide on how to win local scholarships will get you started in the right direction.

    American Dental Education Association

    The American Dental Education Association is a national association which trains dentists and helps shape the standard of dental education. You can look at their materials to get an idea of what you will learn in dental school and how the profession is changing with the times.

    American Dental Association’s CODA School Finder

    The American Dental Association, whose seal you see on most tubes of toothpaste, has an online tool to help match you with schools and find dental education – related resources. They accredit dental programs and provide thorough assessments of each program to help you make an educated choice.

    Frequently asked questions about dental school scholarships

    What GPA should I have to get into dental school?

    GPA is an important factor in getting into dental school. Generally, the higher your GPA, the better. While the average undergraduate GPA for students admitted into dental school is around 3.5, there is no set minimum GPA needed for admission into dental school, as all schools differ.

    Also see: Complete guide to GPA

    How do I borrow money for dental school?

    Great question! Students can borrow money for dental school the same way they did for undergrad, applying for Federal Loans through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Alternatively, students can apply for private loans or Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Loans.

    See also: Financial aid for graduate or professional students

    Can I use the Pell Grant for dental school?

    The Pell Grant is only for undergraduate studies, so you cannot use it for dental school. However, you may be able to take advantage of federal loan opportunities.

    Do I have to attend undergraduate school before dental school?

    Yes, you need an undergraduate degree before going to dental school. You don’t necessarily need to obtain a degree in a dental-related field, but you will need a degree in order to gain admittance to dental school.
