The Fiona Watson Memorial fund sends a final year student from the University to take up an internship with the UN or an internship with a similar international organisation.
The winning student is an ambassador for their country and benefits personally and professionally from their experience of working in such an organisation with humanitarian interests.
The 2015 recipient was Marianna McLauchlan: “Perhaps the most valuable and cherished outcome from my experience are the many relationships I now have with people of all ages, from many disciplines and from all over the world. I am incredibly thankful for the kindness and generosity of spirit shown to me by my UN colleagues and the many, many ‘New Yorkers’ I have met throughout my time here.”
