Books, pencils, pens, paper, folders, binders, calculators… While students probably think “back-to-school,” most parents think “money”–money for the supplies and money for tuition. School is expensive, and even more so as students head off to college. Enter 1Dental.
We have renewed our 1Dental scholarship for the fourth year in a row! If you are a high school senior, college student or graduate student, please visit our scholarship page to apply.
Students will need to complete our scholarship application by December 21st. Once the application is complete, participants will be entered into our drawing for a chance to win one $500 scholarship–to be used on their 2018 Spring or Fall semester.
The scholarship winner will be chosen and notified on January 8, 2018.
What Is Our Application About?
The answers collected from our survey will be used in a general report or article we put together for our website. No personal information will be used other than to notify the winner that they have won!
This year’s application is centered around the topic of student’s health and dental insurance preferences and opinions.
Over the past few years, we have been fortunate enough to run this scholarship campaign to help further a student’s education, as well as glean some helpful insights into the minds of college students.
Last year, we discovered some interesting information about students’ study habits, as far as it affects their overall health and well-being. For instance, did you know that out of 12,407 high school and college students surveyed across the U.S., 61% of students said homework is the number one reason why they aren’t sleeping as much as they want/need to?
Based on that information and others found from our survey, we were able to create a piece of content evaluating if homework is, in fact, negatively affecting kids’ health.
The previous year, we discovered what high school and college students really think about drinking and smoking as it relates to their overall and dental health. The findings were also very interesting.
A lot can be learned from this younger generation, particularly when it comes to their ideas of health and dental care.
