An annual $10,000 scholarship is offered by the MSDA Foundation to dental students who have a heart for service and have demonstrated a history of excellence in both academics and service activities in their communities.


Our scholarship is made possible by R.K Tongue Co., Inc. & Professional Protector Plan for Dentists.


The dental student scholarship helps community minded dental students fund their education expenses.

To improve the public's oral health, we  support the education of today's charitable dental workforce. 

This year's deadline: June 15, 2020


Interested in cultivating the leaders of tomorrow's dental world?

Help support the Scholarship Fund to continue the annual gifts we are able to give to dental students and to perhaps increase the number and amounts of the scholarships available.


Our Scholarship is awarded as a partnership between MSDAF, RK Tongue Inc., and PPP. This is a partnership that goes back into the 1950's. Together we are proud to award the largest scholarship available at UMSOD to a student who is making a charitable impact in our community.

 Amanda Amaro is a third year student at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry who has spent hundreds of hours volunteering for the community. With a 101 year old grandmother, she has a special place in her heart for treating the elderly. In fact, Amanda will be volunteering this summer at the Rockville Nursing Home with other MSDA leaders!
