The Menzies Foundation was established in 1979 as a non-political, not-for-profit organisation to perpetuate the ideals of Sir Robert Menzies, Australia's longest-serving Prime Minister, 1939-1941 and 1949-1966.

The Foundation supports prestigious postgraduate scholarships in allied health, engineering, law and medical research, as well as workshops and other activities on topics of national importance.
