The award is an important recognition of the quality of Alison’s scholarship and will stand her in good stead in the future. The award attracts $1,000.00.

Upon receiving news of her award, Alison said, ‘This is fantastic news and a credit to my fabulous supervisors and their colleagues, the sharp PhD student cohort and the culture of research excellence in PSI. I’m very grateful to have completed my apprenticeship at Monash criminology and feel very much a product of the whole school. Thank you for this wonderful book end to 2012.’
