Caitlin Cowan Wins Two Prestigious Awards

Posted 28 February 2013

Congratulations to Caitlin Cowan who has been selected for two prestigious awards, both of which are only available to University Medallists. The first is the highly prestigious Petre Foundation Scholarship at UNSW for 2013. This scholarship is funded by a generous donation from the Petre Foundation and is awarded once every three years. As noted on the University’s link for this Scholarship, it is intended “to foster the advanced education of students who aspire to contribute to the betterment of mankind without particular regard for their own personal or commercial gain”. The second is a Research Excellence Award from UNSW, which is given to students of outstanding research potential. Caitlin has enrolled in the combined PhD/Clinical MA program, and will be pursuing her research on ameliorating the effects of early life adversity on emotional regulation systems.
