Dr Angelia Grant (PhD '15) recently received the Ian Castles Alumni Prize during the 2019 Annual Secretaries Dinner at the National Museum of Australia.
This prestigious prize is awarded annually to the Sir Roland Wilson Scholarship alum, who has achieved extraordinary success in their field, or made outstanding contributions to public policy in Australia or internationally.
The Sir Roland Wilson Foundation offers postgraduate scholarships to high-performing Australian public servants to study public policy issues of national and global significance at the Australian National University (ANU).
After completing her PhD in Economics in 2015, Angelia has continued to publish in academic journals after returning to her role in the Treasury. She was recently appointed principal economic adviser to Treasurer Josh Frydenberg.
Angelia has built strong links between academia and the Australian Public Service, by helping organise the annual ANU/Treasury Workshop on the Global Economy. While her work and research have made a considerable impact on the national level Angelia continues to give back to her community through her mentoring activities.
