I was fortunate enough to receive a Pantyfedwen grant towards my MA degree in Modern History at Aberystwyth University in 2017/18. The grant enabled me to continue my research into the world of Georgian caricature and Foxite politics. Given the interdisciplinary nature of my research, funding is not always forthcoming, but the James Pantyfedwen Foundation gave me the opportunity to prove the value of interdisciplinary research and I am predicted to achieve a distinction in my MA degree as a result. Most significantly however, the Pantyfedwen foundation’s grant gave me an invaluable springboard for PhD research. Thanks to the opportunities awarded to me by the foundation I was able to present a solid PhD proposal to the SWW DTP and I am now in receipt of a full three-year studentship at Bristol University. I intent to pursue a career in academia following the successful completion of my PhD, and I will forever be indebted to the James Pantyfedwen Foundation for their generosity and support.
