Dental Hygiene Scholarships
Here are some of the Dental Hygiene scholarships on our site for which you may qualify.
Atlanta Dental Spa’s scholarship program is back and better than ever for 2016! We value higher education and support those students who exert the effort to achieve their professional and personal goals. We also understand obtaining a desired level of education can be difficult without financial aid, which is why we have created the Atlanta Dental Spa scholarship program.
We invite you to enter the ACLS Medical Training Scholarship Program. We will select one top award winner who will receive a $1,000 unrestricted scholarship (unrestricted means you can buy pizza with the award instead of books if you want—the check is in your name).
The winning essay will be posted on ACLSMedicalTraining.com along with the second and third best essays. These two runners-up will receive one complimentary pass to the ACLS Medical Training certification program of their choice (BLS, ACLS, or PALS) valued at $275.
ACLS Medical Training is interested in hearing how you think about providing emergency medical care. You are entering a profession in which you may be called upon to provide basic life support, advanced cardiovascular life support, or pediatric advanced life support. Are you excited? Is this scary? How will you handle the situation when the time comes? If you have already performed lifesaving techniques, what was it like? Did you use the skills you were taught? There are no correct answers—we are looking for honest, compelling essays.
What do I write about?
Write an essay, between 500 and 1000 words, on one the following topics:
If you have assisted someone in a life support situation, describe your role in the process, the emotions or feelings that you experienced, and how the situation was resolved.
If you have not assisted someone in a life support situation, describe how you have prepared (mentally and/or physically) to respond when the event arises. Consider and describe what it might be like to provide basic or advanced life support in an emergency.
