Menzies Foundation Allied Health PhD Scholarship – Applications Open

The Menzies Foundation is looking for outstanding researchers with potential to be the next generation of leaders in Allied Health.

The tax-free scholarship is offered over one or two years at $40,000 per year with a total value of up to $80,000.  It is open to outstanding Allied Health researchers studying at an Australian university who have completed the first stage of their PhD.

To be eligible, applicants must be researching in one of the following non-medical evidence-based allied health disciplines:
·    audiology, dietetics, exercise physiology, nutrition, occupational therapy, optometry, orthoptics, physiotherapy, podiatry, psychology, social work, and speech pathology

We are looking for applicants who not only demonstrate academic excellence, but who are future leaders. We expect our applicants will represent the Menzies’ ethos of being the best you can be, no matter where you start; taking risks, inspiring others and being willing to work hard. In addition, we’re looking for researchers who are likely to make a contribution to the further development of the allied health sciences in Australia and who will use their leadership, knowledge and skills for the benefit of others.
The funds can be used for a wide range of purposes, from equipment and conference attendance to living expenses.

In addition, the successful applicant is eligible to apply for a further $25,000 early career grant aimed at developing their research project in the first four years of their post-doctoral career.
