A scholarship fund was established in 2001 by Lennox A. Larson in honor of Dr. Reed P. Larson for students within the School of Medicine’s joint program with Creighton University School of Dentistry, and as of 2012, the University of Utah School of Dentistry. Preference shall be given to outstanding students entering or within the University of Utah School of Dentistry. 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 $1,000 scholarship will be awarded. Available to all School of Dentistry students. Applicant must:

1. Be a student who has demonstrated outstanding merit.
2. Be in good academic standing.
3. Completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required.
