Playford Memorial Trust Inc

Supporting South Australian ingenuity

The Playford Memorial Trust supports high-achieving South Australian students working in areas of strategic importance to the State. It enjoys bi-partisan political support and is an independent, not-for-profit, charitable trust operating under its own deed. 

Each year, the Trust and its partners provide close to $500,000 in scholarships, internships and awards to university undergraduates, Honours, Masters, and PhD students, as well as to students at varying levels of TAFE.

Our partners include respected South Australian businesses and industry groups, the tertiary and research sector, state and local government, charitable foundations and individual donors. The aim is to help students make the most of their studies, achieve their potential and contribute to the State’s knowledge and research base.

Our priority areas currently include: Advanced manufacturing and new technologies | Health sciences and enabling technologies | Water, energy and climate change | Mining and resource development | Agriculture, aquaculture and food production

All funds provided by partners or donors go directly to the students.

The Trust actively encourages outstanding students into science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) studies and careers. In doing so, it is supporting the Australian Government’s priorities for science, and complementing the South Australian Government’s STEM Strategy and associated programs.
