The Playford Trust in partnership with Chartwells and St Ann’s College offers two Residential Scholarships awarded to students residing at St Ann’s College; one to a student continuing to reside at the College and the other to a student enrolling for the first time.

The scholarships are directed to promising students intending to study science, engineering, mathematics or technology subjects at one of the three South Australian universities and who need to overcome the practical and financial disadvantages associated with having their home base located in regional South Australia.

The successful recipients will each receive accommodation at St Ann’s College to the value of $7,000.

Applications close Friday 19 January 2018

The scholarships will be awarded on academic merit with due regard for financial need, character and community contribution.
