A Monash Social Sciences graduate has won a scholarship to study at the University of Oxford.
Lucie Cadzow, an Honours graduate in Politics & International Relations, has been awarded a prestigious Clarendon Scholarship to study a M.Phil, leading to D.Phil research at Oxford.
Clarendon Scholarships are awarded to academically excellent students with the best proven and future potential. They provide a stipend, as well as covering tuition and college fees over four years.
“This is an amazing opportunity,” Lucie said. “It’s a privilege to be chosen for such a competitive program.”
“Lucie’s success demonstrates that Monash produces world-class graduates,” said Dr Remy Davison, Jean Monnet Chair in Politics and Economics, and Lucie’s Honours supervisor. “Our highest-achieving students, like Lucie, gain admission to the most prestigious graduate programs in the world.”
Lucie plans to conduct research in the field of international political economy, with particular emphasis upon the politics of international taxation treaties.
In 2014-15, Lucie won a Faculty of Arts publication award for her Honours thesis. She also won the 21st Contemporary European Studies Association of Australia (CESAA) essay prize in 2014. Her award-winning paper was published in the Australia and New Zealand Journal of European Studies in 2015. She is currently Head Tutor in Foreign Policy Analysis.
Lucie will take up her scholarship at Oxford in 2016.
