Midwestern University in cooperation with Delta Dental of Illinois is pleased to announce the establishment of a new scholarship fund intended to foster student body diversity and extend opportunities for healthcare students from underrepresented minority groups. Two $50,000 scholarships will be awarded annually to eligible students of the University’s College of Dental Medicine-Illinois.
The new Delta Dental of Illinois Diversity Admissions Scholarship applies to incoming first-year dental medicine students belonging to minority groups as defined by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), including American Indian and Alaska Native communities, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders. The scholarships will be awarded on a competitive basis taking into account past academic performance; commitment to diversity, leadership, and community service; and demonstrated financial need, with consideration to applicants who are first-generation college students.
Details about the application process and eligibility requirements will be available on Midwestern University’s Financial Aid website at: https://www.midwestern.edu/admissions/tuition-and-financial-aid/scholarships.xml.
