SCDL Business Enterprise Education Grant



Background

The Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology (Foundation) is a non-profit 501c (3) organization. The purpose of the Foundation is to advance the profession of dental laboratory technology by addressing industry driven needs and providing solutions that are relevant and accessible to 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.

Grant Overview

Upon the dissolution of the Southeastern Conference of Dental Laboratories (SCDL), the SCDL Board of Directors voted to contribute all remaining organizational assets to the Foundation. With this generous donation, the Foundation launched the SCDL Business Enterprise Education Grant.

The SCDL Business Enterprise Education Grant will award two individuals up to $2,500 to supplement expenses related to business management continuing education the recipients wish to attend (i.e. NADL University, Chamber Courses, Finance Courses, etc.). Effective 2023, grant recipients can also use the funds to cover travel expenses including lodging, coach airfare, and transportation expenses upon proof of receipt.

Guidelines/Requirements

  • SCDL Business Enterprise Education Grant recipients will be awarded up to $2,500 to supplement expenses related to business management continuing education the recipients wish to attend.

  • SCDL Business Enterprise Education Grant recipients will be required to provide the Foundation with a professional headshot and testimonial (web video submission or typed submission on letterhead paper) about receiving the grant and how this experience will positively impact their DLT career.
  • SCDL Business Enterprise Education Grant recipients will not be eligible to receive this grant two years in a row.
