Scholarships and Grants Ceremony
The annual University of South Australia Scholarships and Grants Ceremony was held on 20 June to award 116 individual scholarships and grants, with a total value of more than $600,000. It was an occasion to celebrate the achievements of students with their families and friends, to acknowledge the ongoing generosity of corporate and private donors, and to bring together donors and recipients.

Associate Professor Bruce Jackson, son of the late Dr Norton Jackson AM, presented the Norton Jackson Material Science and Engineering Medal to Ataollah Nosrati (pictured) who is undertaking a thesis on hydro-metallurgical processing. The award, valued at $5,000, recognises the achievements of graduates of the Ian Wark Research Institute who have demonstrated the most potential or real application of research in industry.
