The S. Y. Killingley Trust gave me a tremendous amount of support in
paying for part of my tuition fees during the first year of my doctoral studies at Newcastle University. I went on to complete the Ph.D. in 2011, and this would not have been possible without the support of the Trust. The committee were enthusiastic, approachable, and very clearly dedicated to assisting part-time arts students at all levels. Their work is more important now than ever as funding for arts education is so scarce, and I wish the Trust all the best for the future.
