The inaugural round of the Melbourne Medical School’s Strategic Grants for Outstanding Women has drawn to a close. Announced on International Women’s Day and reinforcing the theme of #BalanceforBetter, the scheme has been designed to assist talented female academics to negotiate the challenges they face in building their careers with a view to facilitating their progression to senior academic positions.
The School received an unprecedented number of excellent applications from a diverse range of outstanding women. A rigorous assessment process was undertaken to complete the difficult task of selecting eight successful applicants from such an extensive and exceptional pool of candidates.
