2011 was the year that saw the beginning of the Lesley Shorne Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship will recognize and provide financial assistance to a mature-aged woman who is enrolling in a Commonwealth-supported place to pursue a doctoral degree in medicine at Flinders University. The purpose of the scholarship is to provide financial assistance to a woman who has showed a dedication to enhancing the well-being of other women by their participation as a volunteer, through work or study in the fields of health, education safety, social justice, poverty, or advocacy.

The Lesley Shorne Scholar will have the opportunity to take part in a network that is associated with the Lesley Shorne Scholars and will be asked to attend an annual event that is associated with the Lesley Shorne Scholars.



About the Scholarship:

To build a second campus, Adelaide’s university was given 150 hectares of property in Bedford Park in 1960. Flinders University was born from this. After a year of preparation, construction finally began in 1962. After winning the 1965 State election, the Australian Labor Party (ALP) decided to use the Bedford Park land for an independent university. On July 1, 1966, the University Act established Flinders University, which was named after British explorer and geographer Matthew Flinders. On March 7, 1966, there were just 400 pupils and 90 faculty members in attendance. First Chancellor Sir Mark Mitchell and Vice Chancellor Peter Karmel were the names of the university’s first occupants. Flinders University is located in the southern area of Australia and includes a number of campuses. Bedford Park, the main campus of the university, is about 12 kilometers from the city center of Adelaide. In addition to study rooms, a library, and free Wi-Fi, the campus offers computer labs and other academic facilities. They have a baseball diamond and a basketball court in addition to the usual array of sports grounds and courts. It is a terrific environment for students to improve and develop their academic abilities at the Victoria Square campus in Adelaide’s CBD. 

There is a Tonsley campus of Flinders University. South Australia, Victoria, and the Northern Territory are home to other teaching locations in addition to the university’s three main campuses. As a student at Flinders, you can pick from a wide variety of academic programs in a wide variety of academic fields, such as business, creative arts and education as well as engineering as well as health sciences and government. There are also options in other Asian countries like Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and China. A total of 26,000 students are enrolled at the university, which employs 2,600 faculty and staff employees. It is a part of the university’s affiliation with the Innovative Research Universities (IRU). 


There are numerous chances for students to study abroad at this university thanks to connections with universities in Canada, China as well as in the United Kingdom and Germany. Flinders University’s alumni are some of the world’s most accomplished and well-known. Mario Andreacchio, a film producer and director, has won an Emmy Award for his television work. Alex Frayne is a rising talent in the world of film and photography. Noni Hazlehurst is one of the best-known actresses, as well as a writer, director, and producer. Her work has been honored by the ARIA and the Australian Film Institute. Shine, the Oscar-winning biography about pianist David Helfgott, was directed by Scott Hicks. In addition to writing and directing the picture, Hicks was also its executive producer. In the past, he served as the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Tonga.


Discovery of the immunological cycle is credited to immunologist and surgeon Brendon Coventry. Christopher Pearson is no stranger to journalism, having previously served as the editor of the literary magazine “The Adelaide Review” and as a speechwriter for former Australian Prime Minister John Howard. Poet Sudesh Mishra has won numerous awards. A long list of famous former students and faculty members may be seen on the university’s website. Along with its golden beaches and magnificent mountainous landscapes, Adelaide is ideally situated for weekend getaways to a number of destinations. It’s no wonder that the Global Liveability Study recognized it as one of the top five most liveable cities in the world in 2016. The city’s low cost of living attracts students from all over the world. When compared to other major Australian cities, Adelaide has been shown to be 14 percent less expensive. Students are able to spend more money in their spare time visiting the city and the rest of Australia because of the lower cost of transportation, rent, and food.
