2016 Kings College London Academic Prize

Each year our Charitable Trust awards a prize to a student attending the MA Course in Terrorism, Security and Society at the Department of War Studies, Kings College, London.  The winner of the 2016 Prize was Grace O'Neill from Northern Ireland for her essay titled "Why do people support the Taliban in Kanduz?"  It was reported that the marks awarded to Grace by her tutors for her work were far in excess of those that would merit a First Class Honours Degree.  The prize, a cheque for £200, was presented by the Master, Ian Mayes QC, at the Installation Luncheon on 8 June at Drapers’ Hall.  Grace already holds a BA in History from Cambridge University and is seeking a career in Security.
