2018-19 Clark Scholar’s Research Internationally Recognized

Congratulations to former Clark Scholar Kathryn Strickland for being recognized as a Highly Commended Entrant in the Global Undergraduate Awards! The Global Undergraduate Awards recognizes the world’s top undergraduate research. It received over 3,000 applications this year!  A panel of expert judges placed Strickland’s research in the top 10 percent of papers submitted to the Politics and International Relations category. Strickland’s paper, entitled “Decisions, Decisions, Decisions: Agenda Setting on the High Court of Australia,” examines whether the policy salience of a case plays a role in the High Court of Australia’s decision to accept it for review.  It was the product of her year-long research experience as a Clark Scholar.  Strickland is the second Clark Scholar to have her research recognized by the Global Undergraduate Awards. In 2015, Conor Danaher’s project, “Parity or Privilege? Analyzing Business Group Influence in Australian Lawmaking," was also designated a Highly Commended Entrant.
