ProSites Offers New Scholarship for US-based Dental Students

Temecula, CA – January 25, 2017— ProSites announced today that its new Pay It Forward Scholarship is now available to all dental school students in the United States. Unlike most scholarships, which are solely based on academic merit, eligibility is based on volunteer hours completed by the applicant.

The scholarship is designed to assist students with financial obligations incurred during dental school. The Pay It Forward Scholarship recognizes students who dedicate their time volunteering at organizations they are passionate about.

"Dental school is not just demanding academically, but financially as well. That's why we want to recognize students who take the time to give back and volunteer while they obtain their degree," stated Ken Robinson, Chief Marketing Officer, ProSites. "We are excited to show our appreciation to students who are going above and beyond by helping them financially."

ProSites' new program emerges during a time when student loans are crippling new dentists with insurmountable debt. In fact, the American Dental Education Association estimates that dental students graduated with an average of $241,000 in debt from student loans in 2013.

Since 2003, ProSites has helped over 7,500 dentists grow their practice through comprehensive online marketing solutions including dental website design, search engine optimization, social media management, and pay‐per‐click advertising.

"The hope is that our contribution to dental students will help set them up for academic success and less financial stress," said Fanny Barrientos, ProSites, Dental Scholarship Director. "We want to do what we can to help and are excited to share this new opportunity with dental school students."

The scholarship application is open January 15 to March 31, 2017. A winner will be announced on May 9, 2017. Selection will be based on hours volunteered and personal statement provided. For more information, or to apply, visit http://www.prosites.com/Pay-it-Forward-Dental-Scholarship/.
