D2 Ligia Elena Padilla has been awarded a California Dental Association CDA Foundation "Latinos For Dental Careers" scholarship, receiving it for the second year in a row.
The scholarship ephasizes prior community service among the selection criteria, and requires letters of recommendation.
"It's a really wonderful scholarship" says Padilla, "aimed at helping students from underrepresented backgrounds pay for their dental education. I'm truly honored."
Padilla is on the board of the Hispanic Student Dental Association (HSDA) at UCSF Dentistry.
