ICD-WUDAA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
A Dental Education Initiative
ORIGIN OF THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
On November 26, 2018, a group of Missouri Fellows made a donation of over $127,000 to The International College of Dentists Global Visionary Fund, creating a new ICD-WUDAA Scholarship. St. Louis area Fellows Robert W. Boyle, Gail R. Holcomb, Sixth District Regent Arnie Jacobson along with Dr. Mario V. Conte made the presentation on behalf of the Washington University Dental Alumni Association (WUDAA). The presentation was part of the meeting of the ICD International Council at the Greater New York Dental Meeting. Washington University in St. Louis closed its School of Dental Medicine in 1991 but the Washington University Dental Alumni Association continues to operate for the purpose of continuing the education of its alumni and providing financial aid in the education of young dentists. WUDAA directed its scholarship committee to seek a partner to continue its scholarship work and a match was found with the ICD after a two-year search which came to fruition through Secretary General John V. Hinterman working closely with Fellow Robert W. Boyle and Past International President I. Leon Aronson. The scholarship program will be administered by the USA Section Foundation.
The ICD-WUDAA Scholarship Program offers annual scholarships to dental students. This program demonstrates concern about the high cost of dental education and its negative impact on the career choices of graduating dentists by doing as much as possible for individual students and raising awareness of the serious issue of dental school student debt.
