Scholarship Program

About our program…

Every year Get It Straight awards college scholarships to fourteen of our patients in the Greater Rochester, NY area who excel in community service.

The 2016/2017 college scholarships will be awarded in Spring of 2017 to area high schools students in the Monroe, Ontario, and Wayne County area who are eligible to participate. Any patient in our practice who is currently in treatment, or has completed orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign in any of our three locations in Pittsford, Gananda or Greece is eligible to apply.

The participating schools are Pittsford-Mendon, Pittsford-Southerland, Fairport, Penfield, Aquinas, Bishop Kearney, Victor, Pal-Mac, Gananda, Mercy, McQuaid, and Hilton.

To allow every patient in our practice the opportunity to apply for a scholarship, any student not attending a participating high school on the list in 2016/2017 may apply directly through our website by downloading our scholarship application and returning the application by email to or mailing it back to our Pittsford office before the deadline of June 1, 2017. The team at Get It Straight Orthodontics selects two from these applicants.

Students attending any of the participating schools must apply directly through your guidance department, not through our office. Check with your school guidance department now for details regarding the 2016/2017 scholarship applications.

We are very proud of our patients and this is one way we can help them with their future endeavors. Winners will be notified separately by the participating schools and our office. Winners will be announced on our website Summer of 2017.
