Prestigious Cambridge scholarship for Macquarie graduate

Congratulations to recent Macquarie graduate Andrew Clark on being awarded the highly prestigious Cambridge Australia Erich Narev Scholarship to study for a Masters in postgraduate law at Cambridge University.

Andrew completed a Bachelor of Arts and Law at Macquarie, and will study for a Masters in Corporate Law at Cambridge’s Jesus College.

The Cambridge Australia Erich Narev Scholarship is available to residents or graduates of a New South Wales university, to study for a Masters degree at Cambridge.

The aim of the scholarship is to foster the candidate’s intellectual, ethical and spiritual life to enable them to become effective leaders in the community.

“It is deeply humbling to have been awarded the Cambridge Australia Erich Narev Scholarship. Not only does this scholarship represent an opportunity to learn from internationally respected academics and practitioners in their field of expertise, it is a unique opportunity to engage with young people from around the globe about our different societies, passions and life experiences,” says Andrew.

Andrew encourages other Macquarie students to apply for similar scholarships, both in Australia, and overseas: “As with all things in your university experience, when applying for further opportunities, you only get out what you put in. I encourage all students to apply for postgraduate study and scholarships to support that study.”

“You can’t succeed if you don’t put yourself out there, and by doing a bit of research you will reveal a number of opportunities that most students don’t even know exist.”

Andrew’s scholarship will support his studies from October until the end of July 2016.

Following the completion of his studies, Andrew intends to return to Australia to private practice.
