A new Doctoral Research Centre for Inspiring Children's Futures, funded by Leslie Stretch through the University of Strathclyde's USA Foundation, will soon be recruiting three globally-minded fully-funded PhD students, to explore ways to best ensure children's rights and wellbeing post-COVID.
Professor Jennifer Davidson, Executive Director, Institute for Inspiring Children’s Futures where the new DRC will be based, said: “This generous donation will enable us to strengthen our University-wide effort to tackle the global challenges facing children, building on our strong global networks with the UN and others. We will be focussed on the ways in which children who are facing the greatest adversities can thrive, despite the global health crisis. This fantastic donation equips us with a dedicated team to strengthen this work in new ways.”
