The Salvation Army Scholarship
The Salvation Army (TSA) scholarship aims to provide support for PhD students researching on the area of social justice, welfare and community services in TSA Australia Eastern Territory. Up to four scholarships are offered through the Institute of Early Childhood in the Children and Families Research Centre (CFRC), Faculty of Human Sciences.
Each scholarship will provide a total amount of $10,000 to each scholarship holder and may be offered as an individual award or a top-up scholarship. This scholarship also provides the opportunity for students to obtain ‘view from the field’ and/or gain practical experience in implementing intervention programs in community through various TSA centres.
Details of the projects will be developed by the Scholarship recipients and their supervisors in consultation with The Salvation Army.
