The Allison Milner Memorial PhD Scholarship

The Allison Milner Memorial PhD Scholarship was established by MATES in Construction to honour the legacy of Associate Professor Allison Milner.  Allison served as the National Academic Director of MATES from 2013 until her untimely passing in 2019.  She was a prolific researcher who championed efforts to curtail the high suicide rate among workers – predominantly men- in blue collar industries.

The scholarship is an important avenue through which talented and dedicated PhD candidates can be supported to continue the research highly valued by Allison, and the MATES team.  The scholarship funds PhD research that addresses suicide prevention initiatives in male dominated, blue collar industries within Australia.

The application period for the 2020 scholarship round is open from September 14 to October 15.

The SPA PhD Scholarship is also currently open with SPA, and recruitment for the scholarships is occurring in tandem.
