Final-year PhD student Grace Redhead, who is writing up her research on the history of sickle cell anaemia in postwar Britain, has received the Royal Historical Society's 2018 Centenary Fellowship.

The fellowship, which was awarded to Grace in a ceremony at the RHS on 5th July 2018 and which has a monetary value of over £15,000, is granted each year to a doctoral student of history in their final year of study. Most PhD scholarships cover only the first three years of research, which can leave final-year students in a difficult financial position just as they need to concentrate most on their work.

The fellowship is highly competitive and we warmly congratulate Grace on her achievement. Well done!
