Two of our past and current Honours students, Geraldine Fela and Emily Gallagher, have been placed in the Highly Commended category for History in the International Undergraduate Awards program, convened in Ireland: they are in the top 10 per cent of applicants, from whom an overall winner will be announced on the 6th of September.
Being recognised as a Winner or being named in the Highly Commended category in these awards indicates a student is producing work at an exceptionally high level. These awards are designed to identify and recognise the most outstanding arguments and concepts being raised at the Undergraduate level around the world.
The Australian National University is affiliated with The Undergraduate Awards and is part of a network of universities, identifying and encouraging the best undergraduate research around the world.
Students submit work in one of 25 categories online and judged by a panel International judges. The winners are published in an academic journal, brought to Dublin for the UA Global Summit, a 4-day networking event and recognised as the best in their field.
The program is the world's only pan-disciplinary academic awards scheme for undergraduate students. In 2014 ANU Student Daniel McKay won the History category. Congratulations to Emily and Geraldine on this great achievement, and our very best wishes for the next stage.
