Silverstein, the Director and Advisor of the University of California San Diego (UCSD) Pre-Dental Society and UCSD Student-Run Free Dental Clinic was selected to receive the award because of his many years of mentoring students in the medical/dental fields towards careers in the Navy in the NTAG Southwest area.

The Health Profession Scholarship Program (HPSP) and the Health Services Collegiate Program (HSCP) for active duty while in their respective schools. The three corps also have opportunities for those interested in the U.S. Navy Reserve. The HPSP offers prospective military physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners, social workers, optometrists, psychologists, physician assistants, pharmacists, and veterinarians a paid medical education in exchange for service as a commissioned medical department officer. The HSCP is a scholarship program designed to provide financial incentives for students in designated health care professions to complete degree/certification requirements and obtain a commission in the MC, DC, or MSC.
