The Sir Robert Menzies Memorial Research Scholarship in Allied Health Sciences 2012, Australia

The foundation announce one or two scholarships each year for full-time post-graduate research in one of the allied health sciences. The award is for up to two years at an Australian tertiary institution with appropriate facilities for postgraduate research. The Foundation has a preference for applications from graduates in evidence-based disciplines such as clinical psychology, nutrition, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech pathology. Applications from graduates of other allied health disciplines pursuing a PhD in that field will also be considered.
The scholarship will be open to persons who are working as full-time students in a research only PhD program which is likely to be completed during the two year tenure of the scholarship. The applicant will therefore generally have completed the first stage of the PhD project.
The scholarship provides emoluments to contribute substantially toward the cost of living, books and charges. The level of remuneration will be $27,500 per annum, free of income tax.
Applicants must provide a specific research proposal, developed in consultation with the postgraduate supervisor at the institution where the award is tenable. Applicants must be enrolled as full-time students. The “full-time” criterion means that the applicant should spend not more than 10% of time in clinical practice – unless the clinical practice is providing the subjects for the research project. Applicants must be Australian citizens of at least five years standing at the time of application.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 30 June 2011
