The Dental Grant is designed to assist graduate students in off-setting the cost of any urgent and necessary dental repairs or other dental services, which are covered at less than 50% by the GSA’s dental insurance plan. The grant was created with the understanding that graduate students often are faced with significant expenses due to unforeseen dental emergencies.

The Dental Grant may be awarded up to a maximum of $700 per student (including dependent(s) as defined under the GSA’s dental insurance plan) each policy year. The amount awarded will not exceed 50% of the graduate student’s total dental expenses, including the portion reimbursed under the dental GSA insurance plan (CAR), and by any CUPE 4600 coverage (CTA).
