Education Access Grant


The Foundation is committed to advocating for and raising awareness of the necessity of dental laboratory technology education for dental technicians and other members of the dental team. Each year the Foundation provides financial support, in the form of grants, to various qualifying organizations.


    The Foundation evaluates each application on its own merits. Winners will be awarded at the sole discretion of the FDLT Board and determined based on the information outlined in this application as well as factors such as other grants awarded, program budget and program need.
  • The Education Access Grant will award up to three (3) qualifying faculty members up to $750 to help cover the costs associated with attending an industry related educational event (such as NADL Educator Conference), supplementing their institutional membership in ADEA, or DLT educator or general educator course of their choice.
  • In order to be eligible for this grant, applicants must be an NADL Member Educational Institution with a dental laboratory technology program.
  • Sitting members of the NADL Board, NBC Trust, or FDLT Trust are not eligible as individuals to apply for or win grants/scholarships offered through the Foundation.
  • Grant applications must be received by September 1, 2018 and funds must be used by December 31, 2018. No extensions will be given. If the recipient fails to use the grant by the deadline, they will forfeit their grant. Verification of use of funds will be required.
  • Education Access Grant winner (s) will be required to provide the Foundation with a headshot and testimonial (web video submission or typed submission on letterhead paper) about receiving the grant and how this experience will positively impact the DLT program, the students, and the profession, prior to funds being released.
  • Organizations are eligible to receive this grant two years in a row; however, grants will not be awarded to the same faculty member two years in a row.
  • If the faculty member awarded this grant is no longer employed with the organization by the time the grant funds are to be used, the grant funds will be redistributed to other grants through the Foundation.
