Postgraduate Open Day 2014: Wednesday, 26th November - book your place now »
Dorottya Cserzo, PhD student in Language and Communication from Hungary, was successful in her application for funding from the Gen Foundation and the Sidney Perry Foundation, the latter also encouraging her to apply again in the following year.
Dorottya did her MA in Applied Linguistics at Cardiff, and is now in her first year pursuing a part-time PhD examining digital video-mediated communication (for example through Skype or Google Hangout) from a linguistic perspective incorporating non-verbal elements.
The received funding will go a long way towards financing her tuition fees and day-to-day expenditures and enables her to spend more time studying.
The aim of the Gen Foundation is to enhance the importance of cross-cultures between Japan and the rest of the world in today's global society. Currently, the Foundation is supporting those who excel in the areas of biological, chemical, botanical, and food sciences. Exceptional candidates in language, music, and art may also be considered.
The Foundation was established in 1961 with capital given by Sidney James Perry (1888 —1967) with the principal aim 'to assist persons to obtain education in its widest sense, other than primary, when the expenses thereof would without such assistance be beyond their means'.
The foundation mainly funds first degree students but may consider postgraduate students younger than 35 at the start of their postgraduate degree and when their postgraduate degree is related to their first degree and they obtained a 2:1 or better in their first degree.
