Proposed Project: Evaluation of Dental Scholarship Pilot Program—New
The establishment of a Dental Scholarship Pilot Program by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) will provide education and community services training for twenty to twenty-five National Health Service Corps (NHSC) scholarship students from up to nineteen dental schools. During the two year pilot, annual surveys will be sent to students, dental schools, and partners. Four site visits will be made each year with up to four interviews per site visit. These surveys and interviews will assess dental school and partner performance in meeting the requirements of the pilot program, and the experience of the students in receiving exposure and training to community service in underserved areas.
