Seascape and Beyond Honours Scholarship in Mental Health Research - Suicide Prevention
Sescape and Beyond
Juliet Clark established Seascape 'N' Beyond Art Exhibition in 2010 to raise funds for research into depression and suicide prevention after the tragic suicide of her daughter's friend Kavitha Collard in 2009. Kavitha touched many lives with her bright smile, gentle soul, and warm and vibrant personality.
Beyond Blue has been the single recipient of approximately $5, 000 -$10, 000 until 2012 when Juliet decided to share funds and establish an Honours Scholarship at the University of Newcastle with funds raised at the 2013 Seascape `N' Beyond Art Exhibition.
To be eligible to apply for this scholarship you must meet the following criteria:
- Be enrolled in Honours year in any program within the Faculty of Science & IT or the Faculty of Health

- An outline of a research project relevant to all Australians.
One (1) scholarship is available each year. This scholarship provides the benefit of $5000 from a portion of the proceeds of Seascape and Beyond Art Exhibition usually held each March.
Selection of the scholar will be based on academic merit, the documentation provided, and performance at interview.
The Scholarship must develop practical applications of research findings in suicide prevention and management. Findings are to be delivered in a brief address at the opening of the Seascape 'N' Beyond Art Exhibition in the following year when the research is complete. A short video presentation is to be made of the findings to be made available to all doctors, mental health units, and areas of the community who will benefit, such as schools. The recipient must be prepared to follow up findings with media interviews and view their research as an ongoing body of work into mental health.
