What Are The McIntosh Dental Orthodontic Scholarships?
Every year McIntosh Dental awards four prizes of $5,000 towards orthodontic treatment to be completed here at our clinic. The prizes are awarded to four deserving students attending selected West Auckland intermediate and secondary schools. Students may be nominated by friends, family, teachers, and members of the community. The four winners are selected by our scholarship committee including Dr Alex McIntosh and Dr Milan Raniga.
How Does It Work?
During the nomination period we will be accepting applications for nominees. After applications close, the scholarship committee will select a few finalists to attend McIntosh Dental for a complimentary orthodontic consultation. Following this consultation, the committee will select the scholarship winners. The winners will each receive a prize of $5,000 towards orthodontic treatment at McIntosh Dental.
What Do We Look For In A Nominee?
We look for deserving students who would benefit greatly from orthodontic treatment. In particular, we look for achievers. To assist our committee’s decision, you can provide information on the nomination form about any of the following:
- Achievement in the arts
- Achievement in the sporting arena
- Academic achievements
- Community involvement
Ideally, the nominee will excel in at least one of these key areas.
How Do I Nominate Someone?
When nominations are open, you can submit a nomination via our online form or by filling out a printed form and sending it in to us.
Who Can Nominate A Student?
Parents, guardians, whanau, teachers, other students and peers of the nominee are all welcome to submit nominations.
What Information Be Included In The Nomination?
Include everything! The more great stuff you can tell us about your nominee, the better their chances of being selected for the scholarship. Make sure you include anything you think is important for us to know about your nominee’s circumstances. Students that have been nominated by more than one person have a better chance of being selected, so spread the word and get nominating!
