Anne Wingate Paterson Scholarship

Description

The Association of Child Protection Professionals Anne Wingate Paterson Scholarship was established to promote the study of child welfare and protection in Scotland. It provides individuals with the opportunity to pursue postgraduate study at any UK Higher Education Institute in the field of child abuse and/or neglect (CAN). Proposed studies must address one or more of the following: identification of CAN; impact of CAN; effective responses to CAN; prevention of CAN and how the research will have a specific impact on CAN in Scotland.

The scholarship was established from a legacy left to AoCPP by Anne Paterson who died in 2016. Anne was a dedicated member of the Association and left provision in her will to support an annual scholarship for the study and prevention of child abuse and neglect.

Please see Anne Wingate Paterson Scholarship website for full details.

The award is available to applicants who have a confirmed place on a postgraduate course of research or study within a UK university. The proposed programme of research or study 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.
