Menzies Foundation scholarship for outstanding Engineers – applications now open
Applications for the Sir Robert Menzies Memorial Scholarship in Engineering are now open.
We are looking for Engineers who would like to do postgraduate studies at an overseas university with the aim of developing their leadership, knowledge and skills for the benefit of others.
We expect applicants to not only demonstrate academic excellence, but who 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.
The Menzies Foundation Engineering scholarship provided me with an incredible opportunity on many levels. It allowed me to experience all the variety that Cambridge had to offer: academically, working with startups and volunteering through a university program. In addition, being a part of the Menzies Foundation alumni broadened my horizons to the diversity of options in which we can take our careers.
