The Colin Murray Parkes Scholarship Fund Donation

USD $25.00USD $1,000.00

IWG members are invited to donate to the Scholarship Fund and, through this, honour Colin’s memory and contribute to the International Work Group on Death, Dying and Bereavement mission – to stimulate and enhance innovative ideas, research, and practice.

The idea for this scholarship came from the insight that Colin’s pioneer research contributions have tremendously advanced the field of thanatology. When asked what made him surmount the many challenges of being unsupported in the early days, he said: “After being against it, I had my professor convinced; it was his unwavering support then that made me go forward.”

IWG members who wish to be scholarship applicants must submit a proposal for a research project that will advance knowledge in the field of thanatology in clinical practice and/or in the community. The research project should be completed between two IWG meetings. The applicant may request an extension depending on the length required to complete the research project.

Please note that all donations are one-off contributions.
