2019 Annual Scholarship Winners Announcement

We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 Luciana C. Rausch, D.M.D. Annual Scholarships.


We also want to share big news: after advertising our scholarship in our office (1336 West Main St., Suite 2B, Waterbury, CT 06708), two of our patients decided to contribute with $250 for our Scholarship Fund! That means that we are going to offer 3 (three) scholarships instead of 2 (two).  Our dear patients and friends Kenneth and Karen Antin donated $250 and Dr. Rausch will also add $250 to that amount, meaning that this year we will award three (3) students with $500 each!


The quality of the submissions was outstanding. The personal statements and the letters of recommendation we received were truly inspiring.    

Choosing the winners was a very hard task, and we wish we could award all of them! Our team thanks all participants for their wonderful essays and wishes them the best of luck in their bright and promising futures!



And the winners are:


  • Thy Huynh - $500

  • Jovaun Mason - $500

  • Samantha Czarnecki - $500


Please watch our website for information about the upcoming 2020 scholarships, including application criteria and deadlines.
