ISPCAN has very limited resources for the awarding of scholarships. Therefore, selection criteria are used to assist in the allocation of these limited funds. The following selection criteria are used to assist the award process, not necessarily weighted in the order listed. Scholarships are not awarded in full but are partial in order to supplement funds already raised by the potential delegates.
Criteria that will be used to guide the selection of scholarship recipients:
Delegates must be ISPCAN members who thereby are most committed to ISPCAN's multi- disciplinary interest and commitment to CAN prevention.
Preference is then given to delegates who are
- from countries that are listed as developing countries by the World Bank;
- presenting at the ISPCAN congress or conference;
- from countries where there is not currently strong ISPCAN representation;
- working in child protection professions that are traditionally not high-paying;
- attending the ISPCAN congress or conference for the first time;
- active in their communities and have the ability to take the benefits of this educational experience back to their communities or to offer local or national training;
- able to obtain local matching or some minimum contribution of funding to enable their attendance.
No more than one scholarship per country will be awarded.
PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY RECEIVED FUNDING TO ATTEND AN ISPCAN CONGRESS OR CONFERENCE IN THE LAST THREE YEARS.
This scholarship application form must be fully completed and returned to the ISPCAN Secretariat by 1 July 2015. Incomplete applications or applications received after the deadline of 1 July will not be considered.Please send the completed scholarship application to email@example.com.
With sincere thanks, we acknowledge Elsevier Publishing for providing the funds necessary to make these scholarships available.
