The Australian Dental Association awards a range of grants and scholarships to provide support for the dental practitioners of tomorrow.
These annual study grants for Indigenous, rural, and remote dental students are of great importance as they seek to address two critical issues in Australian dentistry—the prevalence of oral disease among Indigenous Australians and the challenge of delivering viable dental care outside of major population centres.
Indigenous dental students and students from rural and remote regions are encouraged to apply for these grant programs, which total $60,000.
Applications will be open from 20 January 2020 through to 31 March 2020.
