Spillers Orthodontics Scholarship Program
Each year, Spillers Orthodontics provides two (2) $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are either current or former patients of Spillers Orthodontics. The scholarship may be applied towards tuition, books, fees, or any other related expenses for the student’s first year of college.
Scholarship applicants must submit the two page application, two letters of reference, and an essay highlighting a particular person or event that has influenced their personal life and future aspirations. The essay must be 500 words or less. The criteria for scholarship selection is based on achievement, leadership, and service throughout the high school years, along with the essay and references. These attributes can be represented through school, community, or church activities.
