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.
