The Kennedy Memorial Trust in London administers these prestigious awards on behalf of Harvard, providing funding for around 5 postgraduate students from the UK to study at Harvard and MIT. Ed was the only person to be awarded a Visiting Fellowship this year. He will be registered as a postgraduate within Harvard’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences where he will continue his PhD research exploring the ecosystem services of papyrus wetlands in Kenya.
