McEuen scholar Julia Sawatzky graduated from St. Andrews in March 2016 and was recognized by St. Andrews as one of the highest-achieving students in her class. Prior to that, in October 2015, she was awarded the Principal’s Scholarship for Academic Excellence as one of the top 50 highest achieving graduating students in the entire university. In March 2016 Julia was awarded one of two R&A International Scholarships.

Following this year of meaningful and educational travel, I will commence a medical degree program at the University of Alberta in Edmonton in August 2017.
