Travel Assistance

The 2023 ADEA GoDental Recruitment Event is an annual event sponsored by the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) for prospective dental students who are interested in applying to dental school.

This event (to be held in Portland, OR on Saturday March 11th) provides approximately 500 students the opportunity to talk one-on-one with over 55 dental schools.

Each year, ADEA offers financial assistance to a limited number of students who travel a distance greater than 50 miles to attend the event.

As of February 10, 2023, all travel funds have been distributed and this program is closed. If you have any questions, please email us at
