Scholarships for Dental Hygiene and Oral Health Therapy Students
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students studying dental hygiene and oral health therapy may be eligible to apply for a study grant of $5,000 on offer from the Australian Dental Association Foundation (ADAF).
The ADAF is offering up to five study grants to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander students who are undertaking a course of study that will lead to registration as a Dental Hygienist or Oral Health Therapist.
The ADAF is a charitable institution that has been established to improve the oral health of disadvantage Australians through its participation in activities to promote the prevention or control of oral diseases and conditions. It runs projects and initiatives based on the needs of different communities.
The ADAF Indigenous Dental Hygienist and Oral Health Therapy Student Study Grants is open to applications from 1 March 2017 and close on 30 April 2017. Applicants will be asked to outline their future goals and career direction in the industry.
Applications will be reviewed by the Study Grant Review Panel appointed by the ADAF Advisory Board and applicants will be advised of the outcome by 30 June 2017.
Students can apply for the scholarship and find out more information through the new Indigenous Scholarships Portal.
