History and Concurrent Education student Peter Walsh’s paper "History of the World Organization of the Scout Movement: From the Inception of Scouting to 1939” has been ranked in the top 10% of this year's international Undergraduate Awards competition. Peter’s submission resulted from research completed as part of his fourth year history seminars.

The Undergraduate Awards is the world’s leading undergraduate awards programme which recognizes top undergraduate work, shares this work with a global audience and connects students across cultures and disciplines. A non-profit organization, it has been under the patronage of the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, since 2012.

Papers are adjudicated by a panel of experts from around the world to assess the entries submitted. Peter has also been invited to the UA Global Summit 2017, an invitation-only event that will gather 150 of our Highly Commended Entrants and Global Winners in Dublin, Ireland between November 7th-9th
