Social Responsibility Award 2015

Following the first succesful year of this award in 2014, the Social Responsibility award is open again this year. The award recognises hygienists and student hygienists who participate in a volunteering project which benefits disadvantaged children, mainly, but not exclusively, in low and middle-income countries.

The award is granted for the best volunteering project uploaded to the GCDFund Dental Electives e-depository website. The winner receives $3,000 dollars and two runners up receive $1,000 each. 

In addition, the winners will be awarded free access to the GCDFund's new Advanced Dental Leadership Programme. This pioneering programme is a vital resource for enabling young dentists to develop and nurture leadership skills. Participants undertake a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) modules in oral health leadership, and on completion receive a verified certificate from the GCDFund charity. 

The deadline for uploading projects is September 30th, 2015. The winners will be announced on November 30th, 2015.

Good luck!
