Student Leadership Program

CDHA's student leadership program involves students who were selected to serve as student representatives for each recognized dental hygiene program in Canada. CDHA student reps acts as liaisons and facilitate communication between the dental hygiene program's faculty, its students and CDHA. They engage in activities intended to inform students about the association and the dental hygiene profession. A bursary is provided to each selected candidate courtesy of Colgate! For more information, check out the Student Leadership Program Reference Guide.

The application process for the CDHA student leadership program launches in October each year with a deadline of November 30. However, for those in accelerated programs, the timing is slightly different. If you would like to apply to the leadership program, please read through the Reference Guide as mentioned above, download and complete the Student Leadership Application Form, and submit the paperwork to CDHA.
