In memory of Liz Koch and her many years of service and contributions in support of dental assistants, the DALE Foundation has introduced a scholarship in her honor. Liz joined the Dental Assisting National Board, Inc. (DANB) staff in 2001; she was promoted to the Director, Testing and Measurement in 2002 and served as Chief Operating Officer of DANB and the DALE Foundation until her untimely passing in 2011.

Liz believed in the potential of DANB and the DALE Foundation, but even more so, she believed in the potential of others. This memorial scholarship embodies Liz’s values and belief in the power of lifelong learning.

The Liz Koch Memorial Scholarship is intended to help oral healthcare professionals reach their professional development goals and support their mentorship activities. The scholarship is open to all dental assistants, DANB certificants and other oral healthcare professionals.

Winners will receive between $250 and $1,000, plus access to three continuing education products of their choice from the DALE Foundation catalog. Winners will be chosen based on their interest in and commitment to the oral healthcare profession, as well as mentorship experiences.

The deadline to apply is May 18, 2014, and the winners will be announced in July.

To contribute to the Liz Koch Memorial Scholarship, donate online or mail a check to the DALE Foundation, 444 N. Michigan Ave., Suite 970, Chicago, IL 60611.
