BELMAS award for EdD student Fang Jiang
Leeds EdD student, Fang Jiang, has won a prestigious bursary, worth £2000 per annum, from The British Educational, Leadership and Management Society. The award was one of 5 awarded in late 2012 under BELMAS’s annual bursary scheme for students already enrolled on a doctoral programme, who are carrying out research into an aspect of educational leadership and management. Fang Jiang completed the Leeds MA in International Educational Management with a distinction in 2008. She returned to Leeds to study for a doctorate and is in the second year of her project, Examining teaching and learning deputy heads’ instructional leadership in Chinese secondary schools, supervised by Professor Linda Evans and Dr Jean Conteh. Along with the monetary award, as a BELMAS doctoral bursary holder, Fang Jiang has secured a free residential place, worth over £600, at the Society’s 2013 conference in Edinburgh in July, where she will be expected to present a paper based on her research.
Professor Evans commented, ‘I am delighted that Fang Jiang has won this bursary. It’s a wonderful achievement. She is a very hard-working student and the bursary is well deserved recognition of the quality of her research and her excellent attitude’
