Honours Scholarships at Menzies

The Menzies Institute for Medical Research is the very grateful recipient of scholarships donated specifically to support Honours and PhD students at the institute. These scholarships, from organisations and individuals, are highly prestigious and are awarded to outstanding candidates. Menzies actively encourages the recipients of these scholarships to engage with the donors throughout the period of support. It is a great way to provide direct support and feedback for both students and donors.  Scholarships are transformative and enable our aspiring medical researchers and health professionals to focus on their studies knowing their financial needs are largely met.
