Applications are now open for the John Flynn Dental Assistant Scholarship. The Scholarship was established in 2006 for dental assistants who are studying Certificate III at TasTAFE to further their workplace skills by providing an experience of living in remote Australia and working there with the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).

The scholarship is delivered by RFDS Tasmania and supported by TasTAFE. It is dedicated to the memory of Reverend John Flynn who recognised the desperate need to provide skilled medical care to remote areas of Australia. The Scholarship comprises two weeks of flying and clinical experience as an assistant to the RFDS South Eastern Dentist operating from the RFDS Dubbo Base in NSW and provides the recipient with insight into dentistry practice in the outback.
