Our Partnership with the Thyne Reid Foundation
The Playford Trust first partnered with the Thyne Reid Foundation in 2014 to offer two PhD scholarships in agricultural science. In 2017, with the generous support of the Foundation three PhD scholarships became available in the Trust’s priority areas of agriculture, aquaculture and food production; advanced manufacturing and new technologies; water and energy and mining and resource development. One scholarship was offered in 2017 and two scholarships are offered as part of the 2018 Playford Trust Scholarship Program.
The Thyne Reid Foundation was created by the late Andrew Thyne Reid in 1944 and 1955. The Foundation encourages and supports projects in the fields of medicine, science, creative arts, environment, education, social and community needs.
