The 2019 Orthodontic Scholarship

 

***Nominations open 1 August 2019***

Nominations for the 2019 McIntosh Dental Orthodontic Scholarship open on 1 August 2019! To make sure you don’t miss out, follow our Facebook page to stay up to date with all Orthodontic Scholarship information!

What are the Orthodontic Scholarships?

The Orthodontic Scholarships are four prizes of $5,000 towards orthodontic treatment at McIntosh Dental Centre. The prizes are awarded to four deserving students attending one of seven selected West Auckland schools. Students are nominated by friends, family, 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 (1 August – 31 August 2019), 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 by the end of September. The winners will each receive a prize of $5,000 towards orthodontic treatment at McIntosh Dental. See the full terms and conditions for more information.

Who is eligible to enter?

For 2019, eligible students must be from Years 7 – 13 and currently enrolled at:

  • St Dominic’s College (Henderson)
  • Liston College, ACG Sunderland
  • Massey High School
  • Henderson High School
  • Rutherford College

What are you looking for in a Nominee?

We are looking for deserving students who would benefit greatly from orthodontic treatment. In particular, we are looking 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 or 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 for 2019?

We will be taking nominations for the 2019 McIntosh Dental Orthodontic Scholarship from 1 August 2019 and nominations will close on 31 August 2019.

Who can nominate a student?

Parents, guardians, whanau, teachers, other students and peers of the nominee are all welcome to submit nominations.

What information should I include in the nomination?

Include everything! The more great stuff you tell us about your nominee, the better their chances of being selected for the scholarship. In the last box labelled “TELL US ANYTHING ELSE THAT WILL HELP” make sure you include anything you think is important for us to know about this 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!

Please read the terms and conditions on our website before nominating. Stay tuned for when nominations open for the 2019 scholarship.

Good luck!
