The National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA) hosts an annual conference for adult protective services professionals to share their ideas, expertise, and creative new approaches for addressing the abuse of older adults and persons with disabilities. This year’s 30th annual conference takes place in Denver, Colorado from August 19-21, 2019.
The mission of the USC Judith D. Tamkin International Symposium on Elder Abuse is to create safe and healthy environments for all elders, here and across the world, by bringing thought leaders, activists, caregivers, researchers, lawmakers, and other stakeholders together to share findings, strategize solutions, and help shape and propel the field of elder abuse and justice.
As part of the USC Judith D. Tamkin Symposium on Elder Abuse’s mission, we are pleased to offer travel awards for students through the Tamkin Scholar Award. The goal of this award is to stimulate interest in elder abuse research and to help students attend the symposium. This award will include a stipend to be used towards hotel accommodations, travel and registration for the symposium. Awards will be provided to applicants that demonstrate a strong interest in elder abuse.
Criteria: Applicants must be enrolled in a Graduate, Doctoral, or Postdoctoral program.
