Sir Robert Menzies Memorial Research Scholarship in Allied Health Sciences



The Sir Robert Menzies Memorial Foundation offers one or more scholarships each year for full-time postgraduate research in one of the allied health sciences.

The purpose of the scholarship is to try to improve the health of Australians by supporting an outstanding applicant from one of the non-medical allied health disciplines, or from an applicant who is working directly in applied clinical research. Projects in laboratory sciences (i.e. iron studies) will not be supported.

This research scholarship is valued at $40,000 per annum, free of income tax.

Each award is tenable for up to two years at an Australian tertiary institution with facilities for postgraduate research. Graduates in evidence based disciplines such as clinical psychology, nutrition, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech pathology, are encouraged to apply. Applications from graduates of other allied health disciplines pursuing a PhD in that field will also be considered. The award will be for up to two years and is subject to the scholar's satisfactory progress. Each six months, the scholar's institutional supervisor will be expected to submit a written report on the scholar's progress to the Foundation.
