The Playford Trust, in conjunction with OZ Minerals, is pleased to present a nine thousand dollar Honors scholarship to a student majoring in geoscience, mining engineering, or chemical engineering at any one of the three universities in South Australia. OZ Minerals is a multinational, modern mining business with a concentration on copper that is headquartered in South Australia. OZ Minerals is a publicly traded company on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX100), and its growth strategy is centered on the creation of value for all of the company’s stakeholders.

Both the copper-gold mine at Prominent Hill and the copper-gold mine at Carrapateena are located in South Australia, where they are owned and operated by the company. The company is currently in the process of negotiating earn-in agreements with seasoned exploration companies both in Australia and elsewhere in the world. In addition to this, it possesses an operational mine in Brazil’s Carajás province as well as a sizeable pipeline of development and exploration potential in the Gurupi area.

The team at OZ Minerals shares a strong company culture, an unyielding pursuit to be a modern mining company, and a thirst for discovering different and better ways to do things. These attributes are encapsulated by the company’s How We Work Together principles and behaviors, which are as follows: respect, honesty, openness, and accountability.



About the Scholarship Sponsor:

In 1960, the residents of Bedford Park generously donated approximately 300 acres to the University of Adelaide so that it might establish a second campus in the region. There could be as much as 150 acres at stake. As a result of this demand, Flinders University was established. The building process began in 1962 after an initial year of planning and preparation. The Australian Labor Party (ALP) purchased land at Bedford Park and established a university on it using cash from the 1965 election. After finding some success with it at first, they decided it was their best bet going forward. Flinders Institution, which welcomed its first freshmen on July 1, 1966, has been widely regarded as Australia’s greatest university ever since. Named after the British adventurer and geographer Matthew Flinders. Institutions of higher education in the United States had no legal protections prior to the adoption of the University Act. On that frigid March day in 1966, about 400 pupils and 90 teachers showed up to class.

Famous academicians Sir Mark Mitchell and Peter Karmel were the first permanent residents. The university’s first Chancellor and Vice Chancellor will be these two highly qualified persons. Each of Flinders University’s campuses in southern Australia is stunning. Bedford Park, around 12 kilometers outside the city center, is where the main campus may be found. Students have access to a variety of facilities on campus, such as study rooms, computer labs, the library, and open areas with free wireless internet. There is a football field, a softball field, and a baseball field all in close proximity to one another. The close proximity to Adelaide’s business area makes Victoria Square an ideal place to get some work done. The campus is, obviously, the most important part of any educational institution. The Flinders University campus in Tonsley, South Australia is the institution’s second location.


Canberra is home to Adelaide University, which also has campuses in Melbourne and Darwin. There are also classroom offerings in a number of US cities. The students at Flinders University come from all walks of life and pursue studies in fields as varied as business and the arts to teaching and engineering, medicine and public service. Students from all over the world can participate in one of the many study abroad programs. Competition for jobs is fiercer in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia than it is in China. An estimated 2,600 faculty and staff members are employed by this university, which has an enrollment of over 26,000. The university is taking these steps to guarantee that it will remain among the handful of top-tier IRU schools (IRU)

This school has close relationships with other prestigious institutions around the world, including those in Canada, China, the UK, and Germany. Graduate programs in many countries are open to anyone who meets the entry requirements. Flinders University has produced a significant number of influential leaders. Mario Andreacchio, an actor, was recognized for his outstanding television performances with an Emmy Award. He clearly has acting skills both in front of and behind the camera. He knows everything there is to know about the business because he has worked in front of and behind the camera as a producer. Alex Frayne is quickly becoming a household name due to his stunning body of work in both still and moving photography. Noni Hazlehurst is best known for her acting work, but she has also had notable success as a director and a pianist. She has received awards from the Australian Film Institute and the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) (ARIA).

Scott Hicks, whose film Shine was based on the life of musician David Helfgott, won the top prize. Hicks formulated the strategy and oversaw the execution. Hicks did far more for the movie than just write the script and direct the action. He was the film’s executive producer, therefore it was his job to make sure it was completed. Hicks is a great leader for Tonga. No doubt, Dr. Brendon Coventry’s ground-breaking studies have contributed to the development of immunology and surgery. His research into the existence of an immune system feedback loop was revolutionary. As a result, no one knew about his discovery. Considering his prominence, it’s hardly surprise that Christopher Pearson’s writing has won him so many ardent followers. The speechwriter for ex-Australian Prime Minister John Howard doubled as the publication’s editor for a while. He benefited immensely in two different ways from his newfound understanding.

The works of Sudesh Mishra have been lauded by a wide variety of individuals and groups. Famous educators and their students are also highlighted. There’s a link to the member list up top where you can easily access it. Adelaide’s proximity to other major cities makes it a fantastic jumping-off point for weekend road adventures. The area is famous for its breathtaking beaches and rolling countryside. Planning ahead for a trip like that is challenging. According to the Global Liveability Study conducted in 2016, it is considered one of the top five best locations to live in the entire globe. This conclusion didn’t come as much of a shock to me. This is why a lot of students from other countries choose to go to school there rather than in any of the other major cities in the world. It has been reported that living in Adelaide is 14% less expensive than in the next cheapest major Australian city. Since the cost of living has gone down in Australia generally, students have more money to spend on vacation at Australia’s relatively cheap tourist attractions.
