Fulcrum Grant Program


The Fulcrum Grant was created to support the Foundation’s purpose by making higher-level education more accessible to dental laboratory technicians.


  • In order for a program to be considered eligible for Fulcrum Grant funds, it must be approved by NBC, ADA CERP or AGD. Examples of programs include but are not limited to: Pankey, Dawson, LVI, KOIS, Spear, MDT, MDC, etc.
  • Fulcrum Grants will be awarded in the amount of $2,500 to supplement expenses related to an approved continuing education program a winner wishes to attend.
  • 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.
  • The Fulcrum Grant winner(s) will be required to provide the Foundation with testimonial (web video submission or typed submission on letterhead paper) about receiving the grant, attending the course and how this experience will positively impact his/her DLT career, prior to funds being released.
  • The Fulcrum Grant will be paid directly to the course provider, not to the individual awarded the Fulcrum Grant.
  • Once the Fulcrum Grant is awarded, it is only valid for a period of one year from the date of award, or until December of the following year. After that time, the ability to use the funds will expire.
  • The Fulcrum Grant winner(s) will not be eligible to receive this grant two years in a row.
Applications are due each year by November 15th
