About the scholarships:

Suicide Prevention Research Fund PhD Scholarship

The PhD Scholarship provides funding for successful applicants to attain a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

The PhD Scholarship is a funding agreement between Suicide Prevention Australia and the applicant’s Administering Institution (a University in Australia).

The PhD Scholarship aims to support outstanding graduates who are at the early part of their research career. The Scholarship supports research relevant to all aspects of suicide prevention and to develop a capacity for original independent research within Australia.

Allison Milner Memorial Scholarship 

The Allison Milner Memorial 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. The scholarship funds PhD research that addresses suicide prevention initiatives in male dominated, blue collar industries within Australia.

MATES and Suicide Prevention Australia jointly recognise that a pool of talented and capable applicants will apply for this scholarship. Applicants who are unsuccessful for the Allison Milner Memorial Scholarship will be reviewed and assessed by the Suicide Prevention Australia Research Advisory Committee for the PhD Scholarship.
