Student research funding success
Hilary Malson (pictured), an MSc Urbanisation and Development student, has successfully secured financial support from The Smithsonian Institution, the largest research and museum institution in the US, for her dissertation research. The Smithsonian Institution supports a few graduate students each year in conducting independent research through a highly-competitive, funded fellowship ($6,000). Hilary says, “the opportunity is also one of great personal interest, as I am committed to producing publicly-accessible scholarship and will be able to do so through the Smithsonian.”
This wonderful news follows another successful grant application by four other MSc Urbanisation and Development students (Daniela, Femke, Anders and George) who secured an RGS-IBG Fieldwork Project Grant worth £1,000 for their fieldwork in Tanzania.
