Kadar Orthodontics awards two scholarships to applicants who meet eligibility criteria. Currently valued at $1,000 each, a Kadar scholarship is presented annually to one male and one female applicant.
Register for the 2019 Kadar Scholarship using the registration form. Packets will be mailed out in mid-April and are due back by May 6, 2019.
Applicants must be (1) current or former patients of Dr. Thomas P. Kadar and (2) seniors enrolled in high school with documented plans to attend a technical school or a two- or four-year college.
The scholarships will be awarded to individuals based on their academic and extracurricular achievements during their high school careers as documented by transcripts and reports. Special consideration will be given to students who also have demonstrated civic pride through their volunteerism and/or community service.
The Kadar’s Scholarship Committee consists of up to six educators, community and business leaders. One member will receive and track the applications, remove any references to the applicant’s identity on the application before they are presented to the rest of the committee, record the votes and present the results back to the entire committee. A scholarship candidate’s relative cannot be part of the selection process.

- Student resume.
- A brief statement of the applicant’s career goal.
- Current grade transcript or class schedule.
- An essay.
- Recommendations from two teachers.
- Verification of acceptance at a college or technical school (copy of acceptance letter, paid deposit or proof of matriculation).
