Living standards and public policy in late colonial India
My Economic History Society bursary was awarded in August 2014 during the final year of my doctoral studies. For most doctoral candidates that is a stressful period in their studies and I was no exception. The financial security provided by the bursary enabled me to focus on my work and to see my thesis through to submission and examination. My doctorate covered the fiscal and economic history of early twentieth century India. I am extremely grateful to the Economic History Society for the support they gave me and for helping me on the road to passing my viva.
