The Haematology Society of Australia and New Zealand (HSANZ) and Walking Up the Hill Foundation (WUTH) are pleased confirm their partnership to offer a doctoral scholarship to an Australian applicant demonstrating outstanding merit in Multiple Myeloma and call for applications for the HSANZ /Walking Up the Hill Foundation PhD Scholarship to be taken up in 2022.

The Walking Up the Hill Foundation Myeloma Fellowship was established to honour the memory of Marina Grunstein, who lived the last year of her life with Myeloma.   The Marina Grunstein Walking Up the Hill Foundation supports the performing arts, and medical research, particularly myeloma.  We are keen to support exceptional young people who may emerge as future leaders in their fields.

In 2018, the Walking Up the Hill Foundation and HSANZ awarded the inaugural PhD Scholarship to an applicant of outstanding merit in Multiple Myeloma, whose work also aligned with the aims of HSANZ. 

This HSANZ PhD Scholarship is available to applicants who are medical, nurse or science graduates.
