"The scholarship will honestly make an enormously positive contribution to my studies. Fieldwork is essential to my PhD and the money rewarded relieves the anxiety around whether or not I would be able to afford the travel. I understand Miranda Jane Hughes came from Geelong. I was born and grew up in Geelong, so I feel like this is a really nice coincidence! It's great that her legacy is helping female academics and I hope the scholarship continues into the future."
- Amelia Winata
"A Commonwealth Scholarship gave me the opportunity to undertake a doctorate in modern history at Balliol College, Oxford from 1997 to 2001. My research focuses on the interpersonal networks that sustained Britain’s nineteenth-century empire, so studying at the University of Oxford meant joining a cosmopolitan community of postgraduate students and faculty working in the same field, while enjoying access to the archives and libraries that were central to my research. My first book, Colonial Connections 1815-1845, emerged from my doctoral research, as did a lectureship at the University of Sheffield, and then a position at Royal Holloway, University of London. The influence of the work I did in Oxford is still clear in my more recent work on settler colonialism, imperial governance, humanitarianism, and indigenous responses to empire. In 2018, I returned to the University of Melbourne to work in the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies."
