The CDT Pillar Scholarship is designed to allow qualified dental technicians the opportunity to sit for the three examinations that comprise the Certified Dental Technician (CDT) examination process. Scholarship recipients will have their application and testing fees covered to take the written comprehensive examination, written specialty examination, and hands-on practical examination, one time each. The scholarship amount awarded varies upon the individual’s current certification process, but could potentially reach up to $935.
The CDT Pillar Scholarship has been offered since 2004. “The Foundation has awarded more CDT Pillar Scholarships in the past three and a half years than in the first decade of its existence. The reason behind this growth is simple – the Foundation’s dedicated donors,” said Foundation Chair, Gary Iocco.
The CDT Pillar Scholarship is offered twice each year – once in the spring, and once in the fall. The application deadline for the 2018 Fall CDT Pillar Scholarship is September 15, 2018. Click here for details on this opportunity.
