IAFMHS is excited to send out a call for the Derek Eaves Student Research Grant for student members. The Derek Eaves Research Grant Spring 2024 call for applications is now open. Candidates must submit the following electronic documents (PDF) to email@example.com by March 15, 2024.
Dr. Derek Eaves
The Derek Eaves Student Research Grant honors Dr. Derek Eaves’ bursary and academic contributions to the International Association of Forensic Mental Health Services (IAFMHS). Dr. Eaves played a central role in the development and continuation of IAFMHS and provided support, guidance, and mentorship to many students and peers throughout his career. The IAFMHS student board awards two Derek Eaves Student Research Grants each year, in honor of Dr. Eaves’ generosity and support of student research related to forensic mental health.
The recipient of these grants will be awarded a maximum of $500 CAD, and her or his name will be published on IAFMHS’ social media. Upon completion of research projects funded, grant recipients are required to submit a 150-word abstract to be published on IAFMHS’ social media. If requesting additional funding for a project that has been awarded before, applicants must submit a project update and can only request funding for a separate component of the original project.
