FindAPhD Scholarship Competition 2017 Winner of £5,000

Emma Burnett, from the UK

PhD: Alternative Food Networks (Geography)

University: Open University

I wish I could express how I feel about winning more meaningfully than amazing, and awesome, and incredible! was instrumental in giving me a clearer understanding of the academic landscape, helping me identify places to apply, and, through the blog, making me feel like I was part of a larger community of people going through the same process.

I chose my course because the people I met and talked with were supportive, and because the interview I had was really fun. I love my field, academically and practically. I plan to complete my PhD and remain in academia, but I’d also like to ensure my work has practical outcomes for policy, activists, and funding bodies.
