What comes after a PhD?

27 July 2017

Teresa Brown 2The journey through a PhD is often about much more than just research. Being flexible, having patience and persistence, and the ability to work independently while managing research and clinical work were all a part of the challenge for 2015 Allied Health Scholar Teresa Brown who recently submitted her final thesis for review.

The Menzies Foundation

Established in 1979 to perpetuate the education legacy of Australia’s longest serving Prime Minister, Sir Robert Menzies, the Menzies Foundation has a vision to inspire and nurture Australia’s future leaders.

As a national, non-profit organisation, the Foundation has awarded more than 220 prestigious scholarships  to bright and inspiring young Australians. It has also invested over $9 million in four health and medical research institutes and supported a range of other legacy activities in line with Sir Robert’s passions.

From 2018, the Menzies Foundation will continue to invest in visionary and inspirational Australian leaders, focusing on three key areas:

  • new investment to identify and support the development of entrepreneurial leaders to harness and exploit new opportunities from innovation in science and technology
  • new investment in school-based education leaders (eg: principals) from all sectors and systems who have the capacity to revolutionise student learning
  • continued investment in international law specialists who can help shape Australia’s response to increasingly complex global issues.
