Supporting Student Research
Student research fellowships of $1,000 each are supported annually by the College of Dentistry through the Center for Oral Health Research.
Students and mentors engage in research that is typically performed over a 12 month period. Undergraduates, MS students and dental students are invited to submit proposals; however, preference is given to dental students.
