VCU School of Dentistry Class of 2006 Scholarship

Drs. Bradford Allen and Scott Henson graduated from the VCU School of Dentistry in 2006. The two challenged their fellow classmates to establish a fund to continue to make the school a better place.

The fund was established in 2006 and is awarded annually to a rising fourth-year dental student. A committee of fourth-year class officers and four faculty members select the recipient based on demonstrated qualities of initiative, thoughtfulness and kindness toward classmates. The student also must possess motivation to improve student well-being at the school and, ideally, has volunteered for projects or events that have benefited the class as a whole.
