Supporting Dentistry students facing unexpected hardships

Daily life for UBC Dentistry students went into turmoil with the COVID-19 pandemic. The Class of 2020 DHDP and DMD students have had their graduation luncheon, grad ball and convocation either cancelled, postponed or transitioned to a virtual celebration. The students in years 1, 2, and 3 have concerns regarding summer employment opportunities -along with unanticipated financial hardship for essential needs such as food, housing and tuition.

It was fortunate that the UBC Dentistry Sweet Student Fund was created several years back by alumni and friends to support Dentistry students facing unexpected hardships. Thus, this fund will be made available to Dentistry students facing financial needs due to current COVID-19 crisis.

Donations to the fund from faculty, staff, alumni and friends are appreciated, and we hope that together, we can make a difference for our students in need. Click here to make a donation today:
