Mirjam Furth shared the 2011 scholarship with Björn Windén in support of their research studies at the University of Southampton. They were given a further amount in 2012. The scholarships helped their research budgets go further and get more out of their time in the United Kingdom. The process also afforded them some welcome experience in applying for funding and their completion of their doctorates was followed by a successful bid for funding in post-doctorate studies in Japan. They now both live in the USA. “Our time in the UK was fantastic and we hope to have the opportunity to return. There is nowhere in the world, with the possible exception of Sweden, where we have felt more welcome.” Mirjam Furth & Björn Windén
