Politics IR Students Awarded University Prize
The 2009 Sir William Darling Memorial Prize has been jointly awarded to three Edinburgh students, two of whom - Darcy Leigh and Rachel Wookey - are newly minted graduates of Edinburgh PIR
The prize is awarded to University of Edinburgh students who "in the opinion of the Principal of that University for the time being, shall by his conduct, his example, his scholarship, or his pre-eminence in sport, have done in any year most to advance or enhance the reputation of the University.'
Both Darcy and Rachel graduated with First Class Honours in Politics and International Relations this year. The prize will be presented at the Freshers' Welcoming Ceremony on 14 September 2009.
