  • Hello, my name is Rebekah Cutter and this is my application for the

    Postgraduate Search Bursary!

  • I have recently graduated from the University of Bradford, division of Peace Studies, with a First Class Honours degree.

    In September 2014 I will continue my studies by working towards a Masters of Arts in ‘Peace, Conflict and Development Studies’.

  • Why? Well the answer can be summed up into one

    sentence. I am incredibly passionate about human

    rights. But lets expand on that…

  • I have been a member of

    University of Bradford

    Union Amnesty

    International for three

    years. In my second year I

    was elected an executive

    member, holding the

    position of ‘Secretary

    Treasurer’, which I still

    hold to this day.

  • I have helped lead the society on numerous campaigns

    including;

  • In partnership with the

    President of the society at

    that time, I co-hosted a

    workshop surrounding

    women’s rights. Focusing on

    case studies of women in

    Afghanistan.

  • I have help host a week long film festival, free to all members of the community to raise awareness of international human rights issues surrounding; education, LGBT and the death penalty. Due to the success of the film festival, we repeated the event the following year.

  • I have helped host two live music fundraisers,

    ‘Jamnesty’ , raising money for both the organisation

    and society of Amnesty International. Together these

    events helped raise over £1500 and were deemed a

    huge success!

  • Outside of Amnesty International I have also been

    involved with ‘Peace Jam 2014’ and the 40th

    Anniversary of Peace Studies Conference.

  • I was born with a mild form of Spina Bifida. I have

    overcame many of the difficulties my disability

    presents to achieve many things I have put my mind

    to. This inspired me to gain first hand experience of

    helping other people with disabilities and support

    them living independently within the Bradford

    community. I have done this by gaining employment

    at Supported Lives where I have been working for

    three years so far…

  • It is my goal to work in developing and writing policy

    surrounding human rights pertaining to those with

    disabilities.

    The course has two specific modules which focus on

    analysing existing policy's relating to development,

    which will be of great benefit.

  • I plan to help and support many people throughout my

    personal and professional life. Although this bursary

    would be extremely beneficial to me, long term it affect

    many other peoples lives in a positive way!
