The purpose of the Whitetulip Health Foundation International Dental Graduates (IDG) Financial Support Program is to provide financial support for those in the dental profession to pass the National Board Dental Examination (NBDE) and enable them to continue their dental career in the US, integrate within the US dental system and their invaluable professional skills and experiences.

This financial support program enables IDG to attend and continue in dental training, conduct research in various dental topics, complete a specific objective in the dental field, enhance personal capability or skills in the dental career. A recipient can either receive the Newcomers Financial Support Program or Financial Support Program for IDG, but cannot receive both supports. Once approved, the Financial Support Program will be distributed according to the WHF International Dental Graduates Financial Support operation manual.

When the applicant passes the board exam and gets a a score of 70 or higher on the TOEFL exam, then he/she will have the opportunity to apply for the IDG Scholarship Program.

This support will be available for up to six months and will have a maximum value of $6,000 for a single applicant and $7,500 for a married applicant who is in the United States with his family. Among this sum, $1,500 must be spent directly on the medical credentialing procedure, which includes the application price, the exam fee, courses, and studying materials, among other expenses.

Receiving this assistance will not preclude the individual from applying to other scholarship programs offered by the Whitetulip Health Foundation (WHF).
