Up to 10 scholarships supporting world-leading child protection research will be offered through the Australian Centre for Child Protection (ACCP) at UniSA thanks to a $1 million investment by the State Government.

The Enhancing Practice – SA Department for Child Protection PhD Research Program aims to develop the next generation of high-quality state, national and international leaders in child protection research.

The scholarships are the result of a partnership with the Department for Child Protection (DCP) and the Australian Centre for Child Protection. In addition to $1 million in State Government funding, UniSA has committed an additional $250,000 to the initiative.

The program, which is open to existing and new scholars, will focus on supporting new and innovative ways to deliver better outcomes for vulnerable children and young people.

Key research topics that could be addressed through the research projects include responding to trauma and mental health, building therapeutic practice, enhancing reunification practice and creating sustainable partnerships with Aboriginal stakeholders.

An expression of interest for the program is now open on the UniSA website.
