The Dental Therapy Scholarship initiative is a partnership with MPCA, Delta Dental Foundation and MHEF. The initiative's goal is to increase the number of oral health providers in Michigan's MUAs by providing a $15,000 scholarship per semester for dental therapy students in other states and then requiring them to practice in Michigan for up to 36 months post-graduation.
