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
