BOSTON – Second-year doctor of dental medicine student at Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine (BUGSDM) Ismael Montane is a 2008 recipient of a $2,500 scholarship from the American Dental Association (ADA) Foundation.

Montane received the scholarship for outstanding academic achievement of at least a 3.0 grade point average and for his status as an underrepresented minority student. Montane is one of just 25 dental students in the United States to receive this scholarship from the Foundation.

Montane may use his award for any school-related expense. “I am honored to receive this scholarship,” he says. “Dental school is expensive and this award will help me out with school-related costs.”

Born and raised in Miami, Montane chose BUGSDM for dental school because of the school’s excellent reputation and the chance to live in a new city.

He is an active member of Boston University Hispanic Student Dental Association, volunteering with the organization both in the school and in the Boston community.

The mission of Boston University School of Dental Medicine is to provide excellent education to dental professionals throughout their careers; to shape the future of dental medicine and dental education through research; to offer excellent health care services to the community; to participate in community activities; and to foster a respectful and supportive environment
