The scholarship is worth £6,000 and is available to prospective students that study on a full time basis. All offer holders are eligible to apply for a scholarship. Overseas scholarship recipients would need to fund the remainder of their tuition fee through alternative funds. To honour the ground breaking contributions of Jonathan Bradshaw to the comparative study of child well-being and poverty, we anticipate that the recipient of the scholarship will explore in their independent research study (Dissertation), issues related to well-being and poverty, whether that apply nationally, comparatively or internationally.
