Menzies Centenary Prize

Each year, the Menzies Centenary Prize is awarded to an exceptional Year 12 student from the Dimboola Memorial Secondary College, a small school in country Victoria.

Valued at $10,000, the Prize contributes to the cost of the recipient's first and second years of tertiary study.  

Although selection is based mainly on academic achievement, the Prize winner also needs to demonstrate notable contribution to the life of the College over at least two years. 

The Prize was initiated by the Menzies Foundation in 1994 in association with the Dimboola Memorial Secondary College to mark the centenary of Sir Robert's birth in Jeparit. Funding for the Prize is provided by the Foundation and our alumni.
