The Pacific Dental Services (PDS) Foundation has begun accepting applications for the Dr. Carolyn Ghazal Dental Assistant Scholarship.

The educational scholarship is open to dental assistant (DA) students from across the U.S., who need financial aid, mentoring, and on-the-job training to enter the profession. The foundation will award 40 scholarships of $5,000 each throughout 2020.

"The scholarship provides students with financial support and mentorship as they pursue a career in dental assisting," said Ghazal, chair of associate dentist development at PDS University-Institute of Dentistry, in a statement. "My hope is that it will make a significant impact in the life of a DA student and foster their professional and personal development."

The scholarship is one of four PDS Foundation main programs:

  • Dental assistant education scholarships
  • The PDS Foundation Mobile Dental Clinic
  • Special needs training and advocacy
  • International service trips
