The Hinman Dental Society has announced that it will award $138,000 in scholarships and gifts to dental education schools and programs this year. Included in this amount is $108,000 in scholarships and $30,000 to the University of Tennessee Hinman Research Symposium.

The Hinman Dental Society has been granting scholarships since 1986. Recipients are selected by the dean and program directors of each school. In August, the Hinman Board of Trustees traveled to the Dental College of Georgia to kick off the new school year and to celebrate the incoming senior class.

“The Hinman Trustees are pleased to support this year’s senior class with a $500 scholarship for each student. We appreciate the participation from our members and attendees at the 2023 Hinman Dental Meeting. Because of the success of the meeting, we are able to make these gifts possible,” said Dr. Brad Greenway, chair of the board of trustees.

The Hinman Trustees will also grant $36,000 in scholarships to additional Southeast dental, Georgia hygiene and Georgia assisting schools and provide $30,000 to support the 28th Hinman Student Research Symposium at the University of Tennessee from Nov. 10 to 12.

The Hinman Student Research Symposium is a national meeting that features oral and poster presentations of research studies by dental students and graduate trainees from dental schools across North America and Canada. The symposium will be held at the historic Peabody Hotel in downtown Memphis, Tenn.

The goal of the Hinman Student Research Symposium is to help raise and maintain the quality of dental research and education in the United States by encouraging participation of dental students, graduate trainees and dental school faculty in research to improve oral health care globally.
