The University of Adelaide today announced that 29 of its students have been named 2023 Playford Trust Scholarship recipients. Since 2010, the Trust has given South Australian tertiary students $5.1 million in financial aid, supporting more than 600 students in total.
There are 35 business, academia, and community partners, including the University of Adelaide. The Playford Trust Scholarship program is a highly competitive initiative that provides financial support to students pursuing higher education in various fields, including science, engineering, and mathematics.
This year’s recipients include a number of international students, who are excited about the opportunities that this scholarship will bring. For many of these students, studying abroad would have been impossible without the financial support provided by the Playford Trust Scholarship.
The Playford Trust Scholarship program has been a game-changer for many students at the University of Adelaide, providing them with the financial assistance they need to pursue their academic goals and study abroad. The scholarship program is open to students in a variety of fields and is awarded based on academic merit and financial need.
Scholarship Program Boosts Study Abroad Opportunities for International Students
For the 2023 scholarship recipients, this means they will be able to focus on their studies and take advantage of all the opportunities that come with studying abroad. From gaining new perspectives and learning about different cultures to building their professional networks and enhancing their career prospects, the benefits of studying abroad are countless.
