Dunstan Foundation Len King Scholarship

Len KingSocial justice and the law were issues of great principle for the late former Chief Justice of South Australia, The Hon Len King AC QC. 

A man of dedication and vision, Mr King made significant contributions to the community in South Australia throughout his long and distinguished career, as South Australian Attorney General, Minister for Community Welfare, Consumer Affairs and Aboriginal Affairs and as seventh Chief Justice of South Australia  (The Hon Len King AC QC, 1925 – 2011)

It was for this reason that the King family entrusted a portion of their father’s estate to the Dunstan Foundation to establish a scholarship dedicated to promoting leadership in social justice and the law.  The prestigious Dunstan Foundation Len King Scholarship assists individuals who, for financial reasons, would not otherwise be able to attend university to fulfil their dream of studying law.

In conjunction with our partner organisations, The University of Adelaide and Flinders University, we offer this opportunity for worthy candidates to pursue a career in law.  This was developed with invaluable guidance and support from the Wyatt Trust.

Students seeking to commence the Bachelor of Laws are invited to apply for the Dunstan Foundation Len King Scholarship which will provide funds for general living expenses.

The Dunstan Foundation Len King scholarship is for $15,000 per annum paid for up to four years.

Potential students must be:

  • Commencing students in 2016
  • Eligible to commence or recommence full time study in a Bachelor of Laws and Legal Practice
  • Studying on campus at either Flinders University or The University of Adelaide
  • In financial hardship/on a low-income
  • An Australian Resident or on a Humanitarian Visa
