Our Partnership with OZ Minerals

Global mining company OZ Minerals has expanded its partnership with us and generously committed – for the next five years – to support two annual $20,000 scholarships for students enrolling in mining engineering at The University of Adelaide. 

Recognising the growing demand for engineering expertise in an industry that is leading our technological future, the South Australian Government has pledged to match these industry-funded scholarships. Two will be named the OZ Minerals Playford Trust Mining Engineering Scholarships and two will be named the SA Government/OZ Minerals Playford Trust Mining Engineering Scholarships

Successful students will receive $10,000 each year for the first two years of their course and have the opportunity to develop a career-enhancing relationship with the company. Click here for more information about these scholarsips.

OZ Minerals and the Playford Trust will continue to offer a $9000 Honours scholarship in Geoscience, Mining Engineering or Chemical Engineering at any one of the three South Australian universities. Click here for more information about this opportunity.
