Students who are entering their third year of study in chemical, mechanical, or electrical engineering at one of South Australia’s three public universities are eligible to apply for one of up to four two-year scholarships that are made available by the Playford Trust thanks to the generous support of Nyrstar. The scholarship consists of a paid work experience lasting between eight and twelve weeks at Nyrstar’s Port Pirie Smelter during the summer break between third and fourth years of study. Placements take place before third-year and fourth-year classes begin.

Scholarship recipients will get a generous payment for each work placement, but they will be responsible for covering their own living expenses while they are participating in the work placement.

In addition to producing refined commodity grade lead and lead alloys, zinc oxide fume, copper cathode, silver and gold, sulphuric acid, and other byproduct metals, Nyrstar Port Pirie is the largest single stream primary lead smelter in the world.
