ITI – Scholarship program


A program for young clinicians to gain international experience in implant dentistry.

The ITI awards up to 30 Scholarships each year. The program allows  Scholars to acquire insight into case planning, implant surgery and prosthetic restorations and, in most ITI Scholarship Centers, also into research and teaching.


About the program

Since 1998, the ITI has supported over 400 young clinicians from more than 50 different countries with a Scholarship.

The goals of the ITI Scholarship program are to help clinicians further their training in implant dentistry and related treatment. The program fosters international exchange along with professional networking as an enriching educational experience and helps to develop future leaders in implant education and the ITI.

ITI Scholars spend one year (September 1 to August 31) at one of the ITI Scholarship Centers around the world. These are university departments or clinics under the supervision of highly experienced, longstanding ITI Fellows. The Scholarship Centers have been chosen for their ability to provide insight into every aspect of implant treatment in line with the ITI philosophy, which encompasses scientific credibility and a sense of responsibility towards the patient.

Each Scholarship Center organizes its Scholarship program independently. Candidates can determine where their needs will best be served by reading the description of each of the Scholarship Centers below.

Free ITI membership

The ITI anticipates that ITI Scholars will remain involved in the organization after their Scholarship year as active ITI Members. To enable an ITI Scholar to become more familiar with the ITI and its activities already during the Scholarship year, each Scholar is given free ITI membership for the duration of the Scholarship year.


There are no or only minimal costs (e.g. limited license) associated with the ITI Scholarship program except for accommodation and living expenses which the ITI Scholar has to cover. The ITI supports each ITI Scholar with a stipend equivalent to 20,000 Swiss Francs towards living expenses. The stipend is paid in a predefined currency as shown below and is calculated in line with purchasing-power parity.

Additional financial aid

In hardship cases only, where the candidate does not have the financial means to cover living expenses for the year, additional aid of CHF 10,000 is available to a maximum of 5 ITI Scholars each year. During the application process, candidates applying for additional financial aid must provide information on the financial situation of themselves and their parents as well as upload the latest tax return statement OR a statement from an employer or banking institution verifying the amount of income received in the previous year by themselves and their parents.

The request for additional financial aid needs to be submitted during the official application for the ITI Scholarship program. Late applications for additional financial aid will not be accepted.
