The George E. Richmond Foundation Oral Health Scholars Program

Supported by a generous gift from the George E. Richmond Foundation, the Oral health Scholars Program supports future law and public health leaders interested in deepening their research and developing expertise in oral health.

Working under the supervision of faculty and other Law Center team members, two selected Scholars spend 10-15 hours per week for a minimum of 12 weeks engaged in an oral health related policy/advocacy-based research and writing project focused on improving access to oral health care for underserved populations as a gateway to improved health and reduced health disparities. The Scholar position comes with a $5,000. stipend (per semester).
