Developmental Professional Bursary for Academic Excellence in Clinical Psychology, New Zealand

This Bursary is intended for students enrolled full-time in the Postgraduate Diploma of Clinical Psychology  at the University of Waikato, who have had a paper accepted for presentation at a conference, either in New Zealand or overseas.
This Bursary may not normally be held with any other bursary, scholarship or award. Should a recipient subsequently receive any other awards tenable in the same year as this Bursary, then he/she may be required to relinquish the Developmental Professional Bursary for Academic Excellence in Clinical Psychology. Bursaries may only be taken up in the year for which they are offered. In any year, two Bursaries of up to $2,500 may be awarded.
The Bursary will be paid in one lump sum, upon presentation to the Scholarships Office of a flight ticket or travel receipt and confirmation from the conference organizer that the student will be presenting their paper. Payment will normally be processed within twenty working days of presentation of these documents.

International PhD Scholarship in the School of Psychology at University of Central Lancashire, UK

Applications are invited for a full-time scholarship available in the School of Psychology. The scholarship is tenable for up to 3 years for a PhD (via MPhil route) [subject to satisfactory progress] and is open to international applicants only. UK/EU applicants are not eligible to apply. The scholarship will provide £15000 towards the cost of the International tuition fee over 3 years.
Experiences of ‘honour’ related violence (HRV) have been wholly overlooked in terms of psychological research. Significantly, not one empirically-based psychosocial source can be located to inform on the aetiology, nature, or impact of HRV, either for victims or perpetrators. Thus, this specific form of domestic and child abuse remains largely invisible in terms of systematic psychological research and no validated evidence currently exists to inform practice or policy in the UK.
The proposed project will apply psychological theories and research to explore the extent and severity of threats and violence used against and by British-born South Asian males and females residing in the UK, in the name of ‘honour’. Both qualitative and quantitative techniques of data collection will be employed. Applicants should have, or expect to receive a qualification equivalent to a high class UK honours degree.
