Bursary Scholars

Bursary Scholars 

One important goal of the conference was to contribute to capacity building. We were delighted to welcome a number of talented young researchers from low-and middle-income countries that have been awarded a bursary covering the full costs of the conference, accommodation and travel expenses. The bursary recipients were invited to participate in the Global Violence Reduction Conference 2014 and present a poster on their research in violence reduction.
