Grants for Rural and Remote Dental Students


Seven grants, worth $5000 each, are available each year for rural and remote students. 

Eligible applicants must be:

•    Either Australian citizens or permanent resident in a rural or remote region; and 
enrolled as full-time students in an undergraduate or graduate entry dental degree immediately leading to registration as a dentist and must have completed at least the first year of that degree.

•    Please note that grants are not open to those students who are enrolled in degree courses to qualify as a dental hygienist, dental therapist, oral health therapist, and/or dental prosthetists.

Applications and information about grant terms and conditions can be obtained from the Deans of the dental schools or by downloading the following documents below.
Successful applicants will be selected by a panel appointed by ADA. Award recipients will be required to provide a report of 500 words to the ADA about how they used the grant.

Grant applications are currently CLOSED.
