FDS Undergraduate Award
The FDS Undergraduate Award recognises the initiative, contribution and hard work of undergraduate students to the dental profession. The award is intended to celebrate students who have been involved in a project and made an exceptional contribution, developed an outstanding initiative or gone the extra mile. Applicants should demonstrate excellence and endeavor beyond the requirements of the curriculum.
The Undergraduate Award was created in line with our strategy to develop confidence, skills and knowledge of our members at all career stages and to continue to embrace diversity and inspire professionals of the future.
To be eligible for the award, you must be:
- a UK dental undergraduate student
- set to graduate after applications close on Wednesday 30 November
A regional finalist will be identified from each of the 16 dental schools. The 16 finalists will have the opportunity to produce a short video presenting their work, which will be published across our social media channels. All finalists will be issued a formal certificate.
The overall winner of the FDS Undergraduate Award will receive a prize of £400 and a medal which will be awarded at the FDS Diplomates’ day in March 2023.
