Students awarded $10,000 scholarship

7 October 2016

Three Students from the ANU College of Business and Economics have been awarded Westpac Asian Exchange Scholarships to study a semester in Asia in 2017 to the value of $10,000.

Meredith Li, Daniel Connolly and George Cameron from the ANU College of Business and Economics are bound for China for the immersive internship designed to foster a greater understanding of Asian culture, markets and languages, vital to building stronger business and cultural connections across the region.

International Business students Daniel and George, who studies Commerce and Law, will study at the University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong, respectively, next semester.

“Receiving the Westpac Asian Exchange Scholarship greatly broadens my reach as an exchange student, opening up an avenue of possibilities to deepen my immersion in the region's culture” says Daniel who will study at the University of Hong Kong as part of his exchange.

Australia will need future leaders connected to neighbouring markets with Asian literacy, and CBE students are equipped to become those future leaders.

"The opportunities provided by the Westpac scholarship won't end when I come home - as a member of the Westpac 100 Scholars Network I will be connected with others who share a similar experience and passion for Asia, and will have access to networking and events that will be valuable for years to come." Daniel said.

For his part, George thanked Westpac for this great opportunity to experience Hong Kong from a firsthand perspective.

"Hong Kong is where the action is," George said.

Meredith, an Arts and Commerce student, will also study for one semester at Tsinghua University.

She said she always wanted to study in Asia because of its diverse and fascinating cultures and its growing connections with Australia in economic, political and social aspects.

"It is important for today's Australians to develop a comprehensive understanding of our Asian neighbours.”

"Thanks to the Westpac Asian Exchange Scholarship, I will be able to enrich my exchange experience in China with an internship, volunteering activities and exciting cultural exploration trips.

Today’s graduates are under no illusions as to what an international experience adds to their future employability.

“I would greatly encourage any eligible prospective exchange students to just go for it. The possibilities that have been opened up by receiving this scholarship are endless. Now, the possibilities for adventure while on exchange are greatly expanded. What had previously existed only as ideas, such as backpacking and volunteer work around Asia, have now turned into plans. By covering the travel and living costs associated with travelling and volunteering, the funding provided by Westpac will allow me to see and do so much more during my time abroad.”
