The Isabel Schwartz Scholarship: The Tizard Centre are delighted to announce that they will once again be offering this scholarship to a student accepted on one of our Master’s programmes in intellectual disabilities, autism or applied behaviour analysis. The scholarship will pay the equivalent of Home/EU student’s fees and possibly some additional expenses. Preference will be given to candidates who have a professional qualification in social work and/or an established interest in the area of forensic issues/secure services.
To apply for this scholarship you will need to write 3 paragraphs covering the following points:
- what do you know about people with intellectual disabilities in the criminal justice system and the difficulties they face?
- your relevant experience/background, clinical or research based, with offenders with intellectual disabilities.
- why do you think you are the best candidate for this scholarship?

Edward Newell Scholarship: This year we will also be offering a second scholarship which is open to students on one of our master’s programmes in intellectual disabilities or autism.
