Applications are now open for the 2021 Australian Dental Association New South Wales and BOQ Specialist Recent Graduate Grant, which assists the career growth and development of a young NSW dental graduate. 

The successful applicant of this year’s Grant, which recognises a demonstrable commitment to high-quality ongoing professional development, will receive $5000 towards career development training within the ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development (CPD). A runners-up prize of $2500 will again also be offered this year. 

BOQ Specialist has been a long-serving and greatly appreciated industry partner and supporter of ADA NSW,” ADA NSW president Dr Kathleen Matthews said. “We are very grateful for their support of the Grant once again. 

ADA NSW CPD is the leading provider of professional development activities for dentists and their teams in Australia. With more than 300 clinical lectures and workshops run by CPD per year, it offers world-class facilities and support providing a diverse range of educational programs by renowned local national and international presenters for the whole dental team. 

“This is a terrific opportunity for those relatively new to dentistry to earn subsidised places on CPD courses of their choice, enhance their professional development and further boost their skills base and knowledge. I strongly encourage all eligible applicants to apply,” Dr Matthews said.

The Grant is open to any financial ADA NSW Member who completed their studies in the years 2014 to 2020 and is not serving a current term in office on the ADA NSW Board or Council. 

The successful applicant will be required to outline how the Grant will advance their career and other eligibility criteria also applies.
