Summer Scholarships 17/18 – Child Injury Prevention Foundation of NZ

The Child Injury Prevention Foundation wishes to award a number of student scholarships for the forthcoming summer break. Projects must relate in some way to child injury prevention (intentional or unintentional) and preference will be given to those that will be of immediate practical benefit to the community.

The scholarships are open to students who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate programme.

 

There are two scopes available – Unintentional injuries(child accidents) And Intentional Injuries (child abuse). Ideas of these are:

  • the design of a practical counter-measure to a recognised hazard
  • field testing of a specific hypothesis
  • preparation of educational material for use by children
  • literature reviews
  • critical analysis of existing prevention strategies (including legislative provisions)
  • critical reviews of childhood unintentional injury campaigns
  • critical analysis of media reporting of childhood unintentional injuries
  • analysis of the role of the environment in childhood unintentional injuries

 

  • literature reviews
  • critical analysis of existing prevention strategies
  • critical analysis of current relevant legislation
  • critical analysis of media coverage of child abuse cases
  • field testing of a specific hypothesis
  • preparation of educational material
  • innovative application of technology.
