From September 2017, dental students in Scotland can apply for a grant of £4,000 a year to help with the cost of their studies. This is called the Dental Student Support Grant (DSSG). 

Students who started in 2016 need to speak to Jennifer Saunders in the School of Dentistry with regard to the DUBS scheme.
