Menzies Scholars

At the heart of the Menzies Foundation are our scholars.

Our outstanding alumni boasts world leaders in areas such as heart, allergy, bone, cancer and autism research, senior members of the judiciary and legal profession, polar and climate change experts, the founders of successful social enterprises, leading academics at national and international universities, ethics experts and leading voices in economics and public policy. And that’s just a taste of what our scholars achieve.

Menzies scholars have become inspirational academics, judges, policy-makers and education advocates; their world-class research has helped cure illness and disease.
