Colin Cormie Scholarship


The Foundation owes a considerable debt to the initiative of the late Mr Colin Cormie, who played a major role in the establishment of the ADRF. His contribution is recognised by way of these particular grants which aim to foster dental research in Australia by candidates who are willing to interrupt the undergraduate dental course proper for one year to undertake an intercalate degree, or part thereof, or who within three years after graduating as a dentist undertake a suitable one year research-based programme leading to a further degree, or part thereof.

One Colin Cormie Grant is available annually at each of the Australian dental schools. The value of each grant is $8,600.00.  Dental Schools are invited to submit a candidate.  The submission date is 31 January each year and applications should be emailed to. adrf@dentalresearch.org.au.
