  • Congratulations to the recipients! Just a side note to Golden Key: I wish more clarification could be made on the “selection criteria” – in terms of both the candidate’s profile and the University / country of choice. It would save many applicants time if this is made more explicit. This list gives light to how there isn’t much diversity, despite the fact that this is an “international” society made up of various, diverse scholars/students from different parts of the world, which should at least reflect in such a list. People who l also believe are just as capable and worthy of such recognition. This is something that l am not only basing on this year’s list but also the past few years. I hope this can be just taken as “good” criticism, with good intentions. It’s stuff like this that makes you reflect more on what / whose interests are being served by such organisations, whether they aware of it or not. I believe Golden Key has achieved so much and done a lot for many people globally – this is indisputable, it would be great if there was a lot more representation.
