Congratulations to Michael Jones – Rhodes Scholar

johnboy 15 December 2010 1

The ANU, in a busy news day, has announced that arts/law honours student has won a prized Rhodes Scholarship and is therefore off to Oxford.

For me, the Rhodes Scholarship means the opportunity to study at Oxford, and becoming a member of an international community of public spirited scholars,” he said.

“Beyond the exciting opportunity of studying at Oxford, I hope that the Rhodes Scholarship might assist me in furthering the community work I have done with Indigenous communities in the Gulf of Carpentaria.

“At Oxford I aim to get an international perspective on issues I have studied within the context of Indigenous affairs in Australia.

“My hope is to return and usefully apply this international perspective in Australia,” he said.

Grats.

I’m not sure how plushing it up in Oxford for a year or so will help the first australians ?

The English fracked it up pretty badly on thier first try.
