College Scholarship for Minority Women

college scholarship for minority women

Some women who are interested in a dental career may qualify for a college scholarship for minority women. The American Dental Association (ADA), along with several other organizations, created these scholarships to help these women pay for college expenses associated with careers that were, historically, held by their male, white counterparts. According to the ADA, minorities are identified as being underrepresented in dental school enrollment. Below are just a few dental scholarships available to women who are considered minorities.

  • National Dental Association Foundation/Colgate Palmolive Scholarship
  • The Minority Dental School Scholarship
  • The Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students
  • The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Scholarship Program
  • The Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarships (HPSP)
  • The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) Awards Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students

Interested candidates are encouraged to speak with their dental school or contact the ADA for more information.

In addition to the above resources, college scholarships for minority women can be found in practically every scholarship and grant resource guide. But, because there are so many guides on the market, you may want to consider using a scholarship finding service. Many of these services have a comprehensive database that includes all of the foundations and corporations which offers scholarships for minority women. It can take them a matter of minutes to provide you with the results.

Women in general, are regarded as minorities in the context that, sociologically, they are defined as belonging to a subordinate group of society in such areas as social status, education, employment, wealth and political power. One of the ways to help provide more opportunities for women to become successful members of society and gain more control over their lives is through the use of college scholarships specifically designed for their use.
