A scholarship fund was established in 2015 by Robert “Skip” W. Hymes for students within the School of Dentistry who are pursuing a graduate degree in periodontics. Those students who have received assistance from the scholarship fund are encouraged, when and if they are financially capable (preferably within ten years of graduation), to reimburse the scholarship fund in an amount at least equal to that which they have received, in order that future students may have the opportunity to receive assistance from the scholarship fund.

One $3,000 scholarship will be awarded.

Applicant must:
1. Have demonstrated that they are perusing a periodontal specialty program.
