The Playford Trust, in partnership with the Fay Fuller Foundation, is offering a $7000 Scholarship in Health Science to an Honours student majoring in Public Health.

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 for the 2021 scholarships are scheduled to open later this year, subscribe to our newsletter here to receive updates.
