I have great news: I've been awarded a research council studentship for a PhD at Cambridge in biological anthropology. Without your support I would not have achieved this: the MRes was certainly essential preparation and qualification and I am extremely grateful that through the help of kind friends and strangers my own financial situation didn't prevent me from achieving my potential. So thanks again, from the bottom of my heart.

Hey everyone!

Sorry I'm late in thanking everyone for making my crowdfunding campaign a success.

I have started the MRes now and I've got quite a lot on!

I will start working my way through sending you all your rewards now, and I promise to have them all with you by Christmas, so I will be in touch with you each personally soon.

Thanks again!

I would recommend this site to anyone looking to take on postgraduate studies. They have an excellent database of charities and trusts, which award small grants to student from particular backgrounds. 

Just 12 days to go now until my crowdfunding campaign is over. Thank you everyone who has shared online & extra big thanks the 80 people who have sponsored me. Please continue to spread the word and hopefully soon we will hit 100 sponsors :)
