The University of Glasgow and the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research has announced the launch of the new Dawes Trust Bursaries.

The Dawes Trust Charity’s objectives are ‘the fighting of crime including organised crime by the protection of people and property, the preservation of public order and the prevention and detection of crime for the public benefit.’ Research applications need to fulfil the following criteria:

1. The subject of the proposed PhD research must fall within the objects of the charity as explained above
2. The subject matter must bear on crime affecting the United Kingdom
3. It must be relevant to criminal policy and/or criminal justice practice; and
4. The continuation of bursaries awarded will be subject to satisfactory progress as demonstrated to the Dawes Trust trustees in June each year by a report on progress from each student and a research supervisor’s report. The latter will need to provide an assessment of the student’s work and a on the likelihood of its completion for the degree.
