A student of University of Delhi (DU), Hem Borker, has become the 50th Indian student who would go to Oxford University to pursue further studies on the basis of the reputed Clarendon Fund Scholarship that she has recently won.
Borker, exclaimed her happiness and said, “All of us have dreams we deeply cherish and hold close to our heart yet it’s not just our courage in our own conviction which keeps them alive — it’s the support of those who believe in our belief which gives us the ability to go on. For me the Clarendon Scholarship represents the recognition of that belief, a scholarship which recognises you not just for your achievements but also your potential.”
According to a statement given by the University, “The Clarendon Fund is the Oxford’s largest university-run scholarship for international graduate students, and currently, there are 18 Clarendon scholars from India. Since the first scholars arrived in 2001, over 1,000 students from more than 60 nationalities have been supported by the Clarendon Fund.”
