Denmark’s Crown Princess Mary presented the Crown Princess Mary Scholarships for 2009 on May 18, 2009 at the University of Copenhagen.

For the fifth year in a row, two Australian students are chosen from universities in partnership with the University of Copenhagen. The scholarship is available for those wishing to study Humanities, Social Science, Science (Chemistry, Biochemistry, Earth Science, Plant Science and Zoology) or Economics at the University. It began as a wedding gift to Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary in 2004, and goes toward the living expenses of the students while in Denmark.

This year, the awardees are Rebecca James from the University of Queensland and Jeffry Feng from the University of Sydney.
