In November, seven Yale students were named as U.S. Rhodes Scholarship winners, setting a new record for the university. (See story.) Since then, two other Yale students have been selected for the prestigious prize — bringing the total number of Yale winners to nine. YaleNews catches up with this year’s Oxford-bound winners.
The newest winners are:
Ela Naegele '13, a philosophy and history major who has been awarded one of two German Rhodes Scholarships. She will be going to Oxford to study modern British and European history next fall.
Julian De Freitas ’13, a cognitive science major from South Africa. His research interests within cognitive neuroscience and experimental philosophy are diverse.
