The Sweet Student Fund

The Faculty of Dentistry is making emergency funds available through the Sweet Student Fund. The Fund was established by our gracious dental community to assist UBC Dentistry students who are facing immense personal challenges, such as medical issues, illness, or family tragedies, and who are in need of financial assistance.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the FoD will be using this fund to support students who are faced with extraordinary financial hardship. All FoD students in need can apply by submitting an online application. Applications will be reviewed by the Sweet Student Fund Review Committee convened by an advisory to Dean MacDougall. All information is confidential and funding decisions will be made within 10 business days of complete application submissions.

Please submit an application here.
