Dental students are invited to apply for two study grants offered by the Australian Dental Association—the ADA First Nations Grant and the ADA Rural & Remote Dentist Students Grant.

Equipping the next generation of dentists is a key focus of the ADA, especially when it comes to ensuring that there are sufficient members of the profession to work with First Nations people and in rural and remote regions, both of which are chronically underserved by healthcare professionals across the board.

Understanding how important it is to support those who wish to work in both environments, the ADA is offering both grants.

The First Nations Grant is designed to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who have demonstrated a commitment and desire to contribute to the dental health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities after they graduate. Five ADA First Nations Study Grants of $5000 each are available in 2023.

To apply, download a form at First Nations Dentist Grant.

In 2023 there will be two categories of the Rural & Remote Dentist Students Grant. 

The Returning to Origins Grant is designed to support students who have come from rural or remote communities, and who have demonstrated a significant commitment and desire to return to work in rural and remote areas after they graduate. Five ADA Returning to Origins Study Grants of $5000 each are available in 2023.

The Hardship Grant is designed to support students who are experiencing hardship regardless of their geographical background and have demonstrated a significant commitment and desire to work in rural and remote areas after they graduate. Five ADA Hardship Study Grants of $5000 each are available in 2023.

To apply, download a form at Rural & Remote Dentist Students Grant.

Applications for both grants close 31 March.
