For the first time the Boston Consulting Group s Undergraduate Scholarship has gone to New Zealand, with Auck- land University students Mr Ruddell and Emily Chai each receiving $AU15,000. The BCG Undergrad- uate Scholarship was introduced in 2004 to provide financial support and recognition to tal- ented students from Australia or New Zea- land in their penultimate year of tertiary study. Mr Ruddell is studying for a bachelor of laws (honours)/bachelor of arts. He is involved in many extra-curricular activi- ties, such as represen- ting the university at the World Universities Debating Champion- ships and at inter- national and national business strategy compe- titions. Mr Ruddell is also heavily involved with SavY, a charitable trust that runs financial liter- acy workshops in high schools. The scholarship will enable me to focus on my studies and my new role as chief executive of SavY. I also have a big love of travel, and would like to visit South Amer- ica between finishing university and starting work. Miss Chai is undertak- ing a conjoint bachelor of arts and commerce degree with honours, majoring in political studies, economics and mathematics. Outside of her studies, she has represented the university at numerous business strategy compe- titions, and was a finalist at the Global Business Challenge in Seattle last year. Emily is also heavily involved with UN Youth New Zealand, including a term as the Auckland region president. The scholarship will allow me to dedicate more time to volunteer work. I am also keen to experience and explore different cultures and places, and hopefully the scholarship will also give me the ability to do that, Miss Chai says.
