Marchant Doctoral Scholarship
In recent years, government has become increasingly interested in the project of building an environment for communities to prosper through strong interactions and relationships between business, local authorities and the voluntary and community sector. This government stimulus has been accompanied by new academic interest in the notion of ‘social growth’ in addition to conventional measures of ‘economic growth’.
Applications are now invited for the project: Assessing the impact of local small to medium sized enterprises on social and community wellbeing and social growth.
