Pauline Heath Sloane (at College 2013-16) has been awarded a Yenching Scholarship to study at China’s pre-eminent academic institution, Peking University.
Heath will join a cohort of 140 emerging global leaders from over 40 countries in Beijing to complete a fully-funded Masters programme. He will concentrate on International Relations, through which he hopes to ameliorate and deepen the Australia-China relationship.
During his studies at the University of Sydney, Heath studied in both Israel and China. After completing his undergraduate studies, Heath served as Public Affairs Officer at the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies.
Launched in 2014, the Yenching Academy provides full fellowships to its scholars, and offers them a wide array of interdisciplinary courses on China within broadly defined fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Scholars choose courses from any of six research areas and engage in field studies and research related to their specific areas of interest.
The Yenching Scholarship is a highly selective scholarship programme modelled after the Rhodes Scholarship. The programme seeks to cultivate leaders who will advocate for global progress and cultural understanding.
The College is pleased to congratulate Heath on his outstanding achievement.
