Scholarships at Abertay University
|Anne Wingate Paterson Scholarship|
|Scholarship Name||Anne Wingate Paterson Scholarship|
|Scholarship Deadline||11 June 2021|
This scholarship fund was established in 2018 from a generous legacy left to the Association of Child Protection Professionals (AoCPP) by Anne Wingate Paterson who died in 2016. Anne was a dedicated member of AoCPP and left provision in her will to support an annual award for the study and prevention of child abuse and neglect in Scotland.
The main focus of the scholarship fund is to promote the study of child welfare and protection. It provides individuals with the opportunity to pursue postgraduate study at a UK Higher Education Institute in the field of child abuse and/or neglect (CAN).
Awards will be made to individuals with a place on a postgraduate programme at a UK Higher Education Institution and will be up to a value of £5000. The awards are provided to fund the payment of course fees.
Applicants must demonstrate how their research or study will have a specific impact on CAN in Scotland.
The award is available to applicants who have a confirmed place on a postgraduate course of research or study within a UK university which will commence in the forthcoming academic year. A selection panel will consider applications against the essential and desirable criteria, and its decision will be final.
