New scholarship to support Swansea University Welsh-medium postgraduate students


    Academi Hywel Teifi has launched an appeal to establish a new scholarship in memory of the late Professor Hywel Teifi Edwards.

    The Hywel Teifi Memorial Scholarship will aim to support Welsh-medium postgraduate students who wish to study a field related to Hywel Teifi's contribution to Welsh learning and culture, specifically:

    • History

    • Literature

    • The Welsh language

    • Politics

    • Media

    • Drama

    • Religion

    • Cultural Studies

    This year, Swansea University will celebrate its centenary, and it will be a decade since the Academi was established at Swansea in memory of Hywel Teifi, where he spent 30 years as a lecturer.

    Academi Hywel Teifi is asking people to contribute to the scholarship either on a monthly basis by clicking here ( https://www.swansea.ac.uk/academi-hywel-teifi/celebrate/hywel-teifi-memorial-fund/hywel-teifi-scholarship/) or through a one off donation by clicking the 'Support' button on this page. The intention is to award the first recipient at the National Eisteddfod in Ceredigion, Hywel Teifi Edwards' birthplace.
