Three scholarships are available to students at St. Ann’s Residential College through the Playford Trust, Chartwells, St. Ann’s College, and the St. Ann’s Foundation. These grants are open to:

  • a new student to the institution, a transfer student who plans to live on campus, or a current resident of the college who identifies as indigenous will be given priority for these positions. Students who continue to live at St. Ann’s College and attend classes there may be eligible to receive this grant for multiple academic years.


About the Scholarship Sponsor:

A little over 300 acres were given to the University of Adelaide by the city in 1960 so that it could establish a second campus at Bedford Park. About 150 ha of land were involved. As a result of this demand, Flinders University was founded. Having spent the previous year laying the groundwork and designing the project, construction finally began in 1962. After winning the state election in 1965, the Australian Labor Party (ALP) used the money to purchase land in Bedford Park and establish a university there. Their financial success played a role in their choice. Australian Flinders University, named for the British explorer and geographer Matthew Flinders, welcomed its first students on July 1, 1966. There would be no such thing as a university if not for the University Act. On that March day in 1966, there were roughly 400 kids and 90 teachers.


Sir Mark Mitchell, an early settler, has been named the institution’s First Chancellor, and Peter Karmel, an early Vice Chancellor, has been named First Vice Chancellor. It stands to reason that the main campus of Flinders University would also be in southern Australia, where the majority of its other campuses are located. Bedford Park, where the main campus is located, is about 12 kilometers from the city’s business core. Students have access to a variety of facilities, such as a library, study rooms, and computer labs, as well as to the internet in public areas of the campus for free. Among the standard assortment of fields and courts associated with such facilities is a baseball diamond and a basketball court. Victoria Square, located in the heart of Adelaide’s business area, is a fantastic location for academic pursuits. The campus is sometimes referred to be the “center” or “soul” of any given educational or cultural establishment.

There is a Flinders University campus in Tonsley, South Australia, which also happens to be the town’s namesake. The university offers classes not only at its main campuses in Adelaide, Melbourne, and Darwin, but also at a large number of additional locations around Australia. At Flinders, students can major in anything from business and the arts to education and engineering, the health sciences, and even public administration. You can choose from a wide variety of international schools to enroll in and attend for your education. Numerous job opportunities exist in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia in addition to mainland China. There are 26,000 kids enrolled and 2,600 teachers, aides, and administrators working at the school. The university’s participation is made possible by its affiliation with CIRCU (IRU).


This institution has established a wide network of international partnerships, making it possible for its alumni to enroll in top graduate programs in countries as diverse as Canada, China, the United Kingdom, and Germany. It is no exaggeration to say that some of the most influential people in the world are alumni of Flinders University. Known for his achievements in film producing and directing, Mario Andreacchio has now been honored with an Emmy for his contributions to television. Alex Frayne is rapidly rising to fame as a prominent personality in the fields of film and photography. Noni Hazlehurst has many talents outside acting, including writing, directing, and producing. Both the Australian Film Institute and the Australian Recording Industry Association have recognized her work with awards (ARIA). Shine, a biopic directed by Scott Hicks and based on the life of musician David Helfgott, won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2014. Hicks works on both the production and the direction sides of things. Hicks was responsible for the script, direction, and production of the picture. Hicks’ appointment as Prime Minister of Tonga was the pinnacle of his career. The immunological cycle was discovered by the renowned immunologist and surgeon Brendon Coventry. And for realizing that he had made the discovery, he deserves credit, too. Christopher Pearson is a respected journalist because of his work. On his resume, you’ll see that he’s worked as both editor of “The Adelaide Review” and as a speechwriter for former Australian Prime Minister John Howard. His prior two jobs in the industry provided him with invaluable training.

Poet Sudesh Mishra has received numerous honors for his work. Everyone notable who attended or taught at the institution is included on the list. The group’s online directory features a list of its participants. Positioned as it is, Adelaide is a good jumping off point for weekend trips to a number of other places, in addition to its lovely golden beaches and picture-perfect mountainous environs. The destinations for these outings are up for grabs. One of the top five best locations to live in the world in 2016, per the Global Liveability Index. To be honest, this result is not that surprising. Students come from all over the world to study in this city because of its low cost of living. Multiple studies have found that Adelaide has a 14% lower cost of living compared to Australia’s other major cities. Because of the decrease in the general cost of living in Australia, college students now have a better chance of enjoying the country’s relatively inexpensive tourist attractions.
