At a ceremony recently in New Delhi, the Premier of New South Wales, Mr Barry O’Farrell, awarded prestigious scholarships to two Indian students to study at Macquarie University. Each student will complete a PhD at Macquarie in an area of research identified as important to the India@75 mission and in which Macquarie excels.
The Vice-Chancellor of Macquarie University, Professor S Bruce Dowton, said the first two scholarship recipients would return to India armed with the knowledge to make a real difference to the nation at an important time in its history. “Both are outstanding research candidates and will be completing PhDs in biotechnology, one of the real cutting-edge areas of scientific discovery worldwide.”
The scholarship recipients are Mr Ishan Das Rastogi and Mr Aneesh Chandran Bhuvanachandran Piliai.”
