Seeking Donations - Derek Eaves Student Research Grant
We are seeking donations to support The Derek Eaves Student Research Grant. This Grant was set up in 2017 to honour Dr. Derek Eaves’ bursary and academic contributions to the International Association of Forensic Mental Health Services. Grants are awarded twice per academic year to deserving students to aid them in their research. You can choose to include a small donation with your registration. Please contact email@example.com for further information or if you wish to donate other amounts.
The IAFMHS Student Section hosts a free student social, with appies and drinks, on the same night as the conference banquet. Students members are guaranteed drink tickets, although all students are welcome to attend. The student board will send out emails with the specifics at a later date. Event information will also be found online in the conference program booklet.
