The 2018 Griffins Society Fellowship Programme is now open to applications. 2018 is the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, and the Fellowship is seeking applicants to contribute to practice and policy debates around women with convictions by undertaking their own pioneering research.
Are you a practitioner working with women or girls in criminal justice?
The Griﬃns Society Research Fellowship Programme oﬀers a unique opportunity to explore your own interests or concerns about the treatment of women in the criminal justice system.
You must have an inquiring mind, but previous research experience is not necessary as the programme academic supervisors provide comprehensive supervision and support.
The Griﬃns Society positively encourages applications from a broad range of candidates, from the public, voluntary or private sectors, and from across all regions of the U.K., but Fellowships are not available to 'professional' researchers, full-time academics or those studying for a degree.
As a fellow, you will become a visiting scholar with partners, the Institute of Criminology at the University of Cambridge, where you will have access to their extensive library and attend twice-yearly workshops on research techniques, methodology and data analysis. Fellows also attend regular meetings with our Board of trustees in London.
Fellowships are conducted alongside your own work on a ﬂexible part-time basis and usually last for one year.
At the end of your time on the fellowship, you are expected to submit a 10,000 word research findings paper which the society then considers for publication.
There is a modest award towards research expenses and a small additional travel bursary.
