A St. Lawrence graduate awarded a prestigious scholarship for study at Cambridge University is continuing to distinguish himself through his studies.

George J. Maher IV '01, of East Poland, Maine, was awarded the Davies-Jackson Scholarship to study social and political sciences at St. John's College of Cambridge University. His St. Lawrence degree is in economics and government.

Maher recently received first-class honors at St. John's, one of only 39 students in all of Cambridge to do so. He ranked ninth overall, according to officials at St. John's.

The Davies-Jackson Scholarship is a two-year course of study at Cambridge, leading to a British B.A. degree. It is awarded on a competitive basis, and applicants are "expected to show a top-grade academic record, demonstrate a flexible, inquiring and disciplined mind, and to have a clear and literate writing style." The award covers all room and board expenses, plus fees and travel to and from England for two academic years.

Maher is a 1997 graduate of Hebron Academy. He studied in Spain in 1999, through St. Lawrence's International Education Program, and was elected to the economics department honorary society.
