Provides individuals with the opportunity to pursue postgraduate study at a Scottish Higher Education Institute in the field of child abuse and/or neglect (CAN).
We are pleased to announce that applications for the Anne Wingate Paterson Scholarship, for research in the field of child abuse and neglect (CAN) in the UK, are open for 2020 now.
The scholarship fund has been established since 2018 from a generous legacy left to 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.
The fund details have been developed with the help and support of Anne’s surviving family, and we are grateful to them. Read more about Anne and the life she dedicated to protecting vulnerable children below.
