Dental Excellence

ADG Bursary Awards

Dedicated to the progression and advancement of the dental profession, the ADG designed the Awards to encourage both undergraduate and postgraduate students to look at the bigger picture.

The undergraduate categories enable applicants to explore professionalism or the skill mix across a team, sharing their research and earning national recognition for their ideas. Judged by an expert panel, the winning entries will be awarded gold and silver bursary prizes of £1,000 and £500.

Postgraduate applicants will be asked to design and implement a volunteer project that focuses on one or two main issues, for example, improving access for disadvantaged people or raising awareness of oral cancer. The postgraduate winner will receive £3,000, presented as a £1,500 prize and a further £1,500 to be used to support delivery of the project.

If you know an undergraduate or postgraduate student who would like to get involved in such an opportunity and receive national recognition for their hard work, make sure they know about the ADG Bursary Awards. Applications for the 2018 Bursary Awards will be available on the website in October 2017 and are to be completed and submitted by 31 December 2017. Bursaries will be awarded at an awards ceremony to be held in the Library of the Royal College of Surgeons in London in March 2018.
