Child Protection Scholarship
The CRCF Child Protection Scholarship was created in honor or Mr. Manuel Batshaw who bequeathed a generous donation to the Centre in 2017. He was a Canadian social worker best known for leading a provincially mandated committee in the 1970s that studied the situation of youth in care and recommended many of the principles and practices that form the basis of Quebec Youth Protection practice. His contribution was commemorated in the name of the Batshaw Youth and Famiy Centres (now part of the CIUSSS Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal).
Child Protection Scholarships are available to any person pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in the School of Social Work at McGill University on this subject matter. This scholarship aims to provide ﬁnancial assistance to cover the cost of attending a conference or to complete a research project (including community collaborative initiatives, completing an independent study project or tutorial) on the topic of child protection. Students must provide a brief report of the conference proceedings or research ﬁndings upon completion. Two scholarships of $500 are awarded per academic year and are non-renewable.
The CRCF Graduate Student Travel Grants are competitive grants designed to support graduate student travel expenses for MSW (thesis option) and PhD students, and postdoctoral fellows for the purposes of disseminating research (conference and talk), data collection, and training. Priority will be given to students who are presenting to a conference. The competition runs once a year, with a deadline of June 1 to support students travelling to a conference in the following 12 months. You must apply for the grant prior to traveling. CRCF Graduate Student Travel grants will be distributed as an expense reimbursement up to a maximum of $500.
