Equipping the next generation of dentists is a key focus of the Australian Dental Association. This is particularly important when it comes to ensuring 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 inviting grant applications from both First Nations dentist students and those who wish to work in rural and remote regions.

The grant for First Nations dentist students 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 2024.

In 2024 there will be two categories of grants for rural and remote dentist students: Returning to Origins and Hardship.

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 2024.

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 2024.

Applications for all grants close at COB on Sunday 31 March 2024.
