The Playford Trust in partnership with the Fay Fuller Foundation is offering an Honours Scholarship in Health Science to a student majoring in Public Health. The scholarship is for $7,000.

The Fay Fuller Foundation was established in 2003 to give support to the community across a wide range of areas.  The Foundation believes South Australia is a great place to live and wants to continue to build upon this, particularly in the area of health.  It has distributed funds to a variety of organisations in South Australia, including those supporting children, health related issues, education and scientific research.

Applications close Friday 19 January 2018.
