Student Support


Transforming the dental education enterprise— including alleviating debt so that students are free to pursue careers aligned with their passions—is one of the highest priorities of the UCLA School of Dentistry. The university is grateful for the support of alumni and friends who share this vision, and we seek philanthropic partners who are committed to providing meaningful support for the oral health leaders of tomorrow.

The cost of dental education grows every year, making it the most expensive professional school. The projected four-year cost for students entering UCLA now reaches nearly $360,000. Financial aid plays a large role in a student’s choice of dental school, and scholarships are vital to recruiting and retaining top students.
