We are glad to recommend the first international essay competition about addiction in Scotland and invite students of medicine, nursing, psychology and social work from South East Europe and from all over the world to submit academic essays on addiction.
The competition was launched by Castle Craig Hospital, located near Edinburgh, one of the most respected addiction treatment (rehab) clinics in Europe. Patients come from all over the world for residential addiction treatment at Castle Craig, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
“We’re marking our 30th anniversary by creating this competition,” said Dominic McCann, Castle Craig’s Director of Development.
“We want to reach-out to the next generation of addiction treatment professionals,” he continued, “and to raise awareness of this critical subject with students globally. Addiction is one of the biggest health and social challenges of our time and this is our way of preparing for the next 30 years.”
Students can choose from three essay titles and the deadline is 30th December 2018. Postgraduate students are also welcome to apply.
The top prize is £1,000 (USD 1,300). Five prizes of £250 (USD 325) will also be awarded.
