As a catalyst for achievement, the the Menzies Foundation's vision is to identify and promote the next generation of Australian leaders, invest in world class health research and advance initiatives of national importance.
Established in memory of Sir Robert Menzies, Australia's longest-serving Prime Minister, the Foundation is a non-political, not-for-profit organisation.

The Governor of Victoria, His Excellency the Hon Alex Chernov AC QC will present the 2015 Menzies Scholarships at a reception this Thursday evening.
Awarded since the early 1980s for post graduate study in the areas of allied health, engineering, law and medicine, the annual scholarships enable exceptional individuals to further their studies at the world's best universities. Many past recipients have risen to the highest levels of their profession as judges, professors, engineers and researchers.
"This ceremony recognises those young Australians who may well be our future leaders," said Menzies Foundation chief executive Sarah Hardy. "They have extraordinary talent in their chosen fields and have already made significant public service contributions."
