Every year Fraser Dental awards one deserving student a $5,000 prize for orthodontic treatment.
What Is The Orthodontic Scholarship?
The Orthodontic Scholarship is one prize of $5,000 towards orthodontic treatment at Fraser Dental Centre. The prize is awarded to one deserving student attending either Hobsonville Point Primary in Years 7 or 8, or Hobsonville Point Secondary Schools. Students are nominated by friends, family, and members of the community. The winner is selected by our scholarship committee including Dr Alex McIntosh and Dr Milan Raniga.
How Does It Work?
Nominations are open for approximately one month in August each year. After applications close, the scholarship committee will select a few finalists to attend Fraser Dental for a complimentary orthodontic consultation. Following this consultation, the committee will select the scholarship winners by the end of September. The winners will each receive a prize of $5,000 towards orthodontic treatment at Fraser Dental.
Who Is Eligible To Enter?
All students from year 7 to year 13 currently enrolled at Hobsonville Point Primary and Secondary schools are eligible to be nominated.
