Menzies Foundation Law Scholarships – applications now open

4 July 2016

Law scholarshipApplications for the Sir Robert Menzies Memorial Scholarship in Law and the Sir Ninian Stephen Menzies Scholarship in International Law are now open.

We are looking for applicants who not only demonstrate academic excellence, but who are future leaders. Our alumni are constantly seeking knowledge and developing their skills for the benefit of others.

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.

I can’t encourage others strongly enough to apply. If you have an idea of what you’d like to achieve in the world and you know further study will help make it a reality the Menzies Foundation scholarships offer an incredible opportunity. I can say without exaggeration that the scholarship shaped the next four years of my life.
