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.

This 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 2021 scholarship round is open from July 1 to October 29.

PhD Scholarships are open to Australian graduate researchers undertaking research addressing suicide prevention initiatives for blue collar, male dominated industries in Australia.

Applications can be made by those currently engaged in Bachelor Honors or Masters by Research who intend to enroll in a PhD. Applications can also be made by students who are already enrolled in a PhD program.
