2017 Scholarships have been awarded!  

The Society of American Indian Dentists is pleased to announce that a record number of students applied for 2017 scholarships. Our selection committee, comprised of board members of SAID, was tasked with a great decision-making responsibility this year.  Our committee expressed their decision was difficult, as all applicants showed great depth of character and a deep desire to work in Native American communities.  In total, four recipients were chosen--two each for the Colgate Post-Graduate Scholarship and the Procter & Gamble Student or Resident Scholarship. Scholarship recipients will be recognized this summer at the 2017 Annual Conference in Cincinnati, OH.
