    Marking a decade of helping career dreams come true, this year's especially exciting for the ADA Dental Health Foundation's (ADA DHF) First Nation Study Grants.

    Applications are now open for the grants with up to four available, worth $5,000 each. 

    The ADA DHF's a registered charity whose mission is to address the inequality between those Australians who can access the dental care they need, and those who can’t.

    The First Nations Study Grants have helped to fulfil that mandate since 2013, by offering students funding that may be used to cover costs of dental equipment, textbooks and to support students while they are on placements or living away from home.

    Once again, the study grants are on offer to students of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background who are undertaking a course of study that will lead to registration as a Dental Hygienist or Oral Health Therapist. 

    Applications close 31 May 2024 and successful applicants will be notified during NAIDOC Week (7 - 14 July 2024). 

    To find out more:
