NADL University Grant

Grant Overview

Recognizing the continuous need for dental laboratory management and education, the Foundation is bringing back the NADL University Grant in 2024.

The NADL University Grant will cover tuition for two individuals to attend NADL University (NADL U) in 2024. The cost to attend NADL U would typically be $1,495 per individual for NADL members and $1,895 per individual for non-NADL members; however, grant recipients will have their tuition fee covered by the Foundation. NADL U was developed to meet the growing educational needs of today's dental laboratory managers. The program allows eligible professionals to earn a Certificate in Dental Laboratory Management during a two-day intensive course of study.
