Two University of Adelaide students have won a prestigious Australian Government scholarship to research and study in Asia next year. The Prime Minister’s Australia Asia Endeavour Award was presented to Sally Dipell and Benjamin English. The students received their Award at a dinner held at the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra on 6 December. The awards are competitive, merit-based scholarships that give high-achieving individuals an opportunity to enrich their academic experience at leading universities in Asia.
Sally Dipell (Undergraduate Law) will be studying at Waseda University, Japan. Her studies will focus on Japanese Constitutional Law and the public legal context in which it operates. A former full-time Army officer who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan, Sally wants to develop a better understanding of the implications of Japan’s ‘Article 9’ Constitutional constraints on security alliances.
Benjamin English (undergraduate Arts/Law/Dip Languages) will be studying international law, Chinese law and public affairs at the University of Hong Kong. His main focus will be on international immigration law.
Adelaide Law School sends best wishes to both Sally and Benjamin.
