Ross, 18, who made his Dons debut last year and has gone on to make seven first-team appearances – including in Premiership matches against Rangers and Hibernian this season – will be eligible for Pars against Ayr United in the Championship tomorrow.
A Dons statement said: “Everyone at the club wishes Ethan all the very best during his spell at Dunfermline.”
