The A.M. Horsnell Travelling Scholarship was established in 1980 by the University of Adelaide following acceptance of funds raised by the private subscription to commemorate the services rendered to the Dental School by Professor Arthur Maxwell Horsnell, Professor of Dental Science (later Dental Health) from 1959 to 1977. The fund was increased in 1980 by the transfer of funding from the residual funds of the Student Education Exchange Scheme. In 1999, Professor Horsnell bequeathed additional funding to augment the A.M. Horsnell Travelling Scholarship.

Applicants must be Australian citizens/permanent residents of Australia undertaking study as a Commonwealth supported student and must remain enrolled on a full time basis in the approved program for which the scholarship was approved.

The Scholarship is available to a student undertaking the fourth or fifth year of the Bachelor of Dental Surgery to visit an approved Dental School or other institution for a period not exceeding twelve weeks.

Up to $4,500 is available annually. Where two or more candidates are of equal merit in any year, the Scholarship may be divided amongst them.

Selection of the successful candidate will be made according to academic merit and also other factors such as the likely benefit to be derived both by the dental school and the student.  Academic merit for continuing students will be determined according to students’ cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) or equivalent scores. After the recipient has returned from their visit to the approved Dental School or other institution, the recipient must provide a written report to the Head of School detailing the outcome of their visit and the experience and benefits gained.

The Scholarship must be taken up in the year in which it is offered; acceptance of the Scholarship cannot be deferred. If a student declines the Scholarship offer, the Scholarship will be offered to the next eligible student.

Students in receipt of other University of Adelaide scholarships may apply for this scholarship.
