Griffins Fellowships 2016

The 2016 Griffins Fellowship Programme: applications now being invited.  Would you like to contribute to practice and policy debates about women offenders by undertaking your own pioneering research?  The Griffins Society promotes effective practice in working with women and girls who are in prison or subject to criminal justice interventions in the community.  Our Visiting Research Fellowship Programme, in partnership with the Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge offers practitioners from the public or voluntary sectors a unique opportunity.  Previous research experience is not necessary as the Programme supervisors provide comprehensive academic supervision and support.

Six Fellowships are available for 2016-17, four of which can be on any aspect of the treatment of women or girls in the criminal justice system.  The other two are being offered in conjunction with the Lankelly Chase Foundation who exist to bring about change to transform the quality of life of people who face severe and multiple disadvantage. For these two fellowships we are seeking proposals relating specifically to:  ‘The lived reality of women facing severe and multiple disadvantage’.

The deadline for applications is:  Noon, Monday 9th May 2016.
