In 2015, we offered the first-ever Finger Lakes Dental Care academic scholarship to three loyal patients. Contestants were asked to submit an application, letters of recommendation, transcripts, and most importantly a video telling us why they should be considered for the scholarship. After evaluating numerous applicants, judges awarded three $1,000 scholarships for contestants to put towards their academic endeavors.
Recognizing that the costs for higher education keeps rising, we feel this scholarship is an easy way to give back to the community that has welcomed us with open arms. We feel so blessed to be a part of this community, and it just seems like the right thing to do. Plus, I hope that this money can play a small part in growing future leaders in our community.
Building off of last year’s success, we are going to offer three more scholarships this year. We are going to award a $1,000 scholarship to three of our patients that can be used for any type of higher education. A review committee will evaluate all submissions and award the scholarship to three candidates based on their application and a short video expressing why they would be a good candidate for the scholarship.
The criteria for the scholarship is pretty simple and straight forward. I don’t want to create an over burdensome application process. Instead, simply answer a few questions, submit academic transcripts, and shoot a short video…. that’s it! The deadline for applications is May 15th, and winners will be announced on June 1st.
