International sections of the Pierre Fauchard Academy may apply for student scholarships. Scholarships are awarded based upon the number of dues-paying Fellows in both the Region and the related Sections through the Academy’s Fellowship roster.  In addition, it is necessary for the section to demonstrate current activity levels of the Fellows.

All recipients must be third-year students who will achieve fourth-year status the following academic year.  Specific scholarship amounts are determined by monetary equivalencies for each Region and Section and are based on the level of PFA membership dues paid.  The amount of actual funds available for scholarships is approved by the Board of Trustees during their Annual Board Meeting.
