Recent NSW graduates have the opportunity to receive a share of $7500 worth of financial support and access world-class teaching to further support their developing career.

Applications are now open for the 2020 ADA NSW BOQ Specialist Recent Graduate Bursary, which assists the career growth and development of a young dentist. 

The successful applicant of this year’s bursary, 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).

For the first time since the scheme launched in 2018, a $2500 bursary is also on offer for this year’s runner-up applicant.

“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 bursary once again.

“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 would strongly encourage all eligible applicants to apply and wish them all good luck.”

Applications close on Wednesday 30 September 2020 and application forms—as well as additional information about the bursary—can be found on the ADA NSW website.

In Victoria, the ADAVB and BOQ Specialist are once again giving practice owners and their staff the opportunity to apply for a CPD Practice Bursary.

The 2020 ADAVB BOQ Specialist CPD Practice Bursary recognises and supports dental practices that are committed to quality learning through continuing professional development for every practitioner and professional staff in the practice.

The bursary consists of a grant valued at $10,000 to be used for professional development and training purposes, of which $2000 must be used for CPD courses and/or training programs offered by the ADAVB.

The bursary will be presented to the successful candidate at an event at the end of 2020.
