The William and Patricia Child Endowed Scholarship

An endowed scholarship was established in 2019 by Bill and Pat Child. The Childs have supported scholarships across the University of Utah and appreciate the contributions of the School of Dentistry in serving people in need throughout Utah. The Childs are not only grateful patients of the School but also share stories from their childhood of regular visits to the dentist. They value the gift of health the visits provided them and hope many generations of people benefit from students at the School of Dentistry.
