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.
