Vic­tim Sup­port is of­fer­ing the coun­try’s first schol­ar­ship to ad­vance re­search into vic­tims’ rights.

The Dave Smith Me­mo­rial Re­search Schol­ar­ship of­fers up to $10,000 a year to sup­port re­search.

The schol­ar­ship is named af­ter the late po­lice chief in­spec­tor Dave Smith, a Vic­tim’s Task Force mem­ber and Vic­tim Sup­port board mem­ber, who died in 2004.

Vic­tim Sup­port act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive Heather Verry says re­search spe­cific to vic­tims in New Zealand is lim­ited.

The schol­ar­ship is open to post­grad­u­ate stu­dents, re­search in­sti­tutes and or­gan­i­sa­tions that work with vic­tims.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close on Oc­to­ber 1 and an ap­pli­ca­tion form is avail­able from www. vic­tim­sup­port.org.nz.
