Four current Yale students and two recent alumni will undertake post-graduate study in the United Kingdom and Ireland next year as Rhodes, Marshall and Mitchell scholars.
Senior William Zeng, a physics major and member of Yale’s lightweight crew team, and Alice Baumgartner ‘10, a history major who has been working at a clinic in the Bolivian jungle on a Gordon Grand Fellowship, have been awarded Rhodes Scholarships for study at the University of Oxford.
Seniors Elizabeth Deutsch and Mari Oye and alumnus Andrew Mangino ‘09 have been named Marshall Scholars. Oye is a political science and international studies major who serves on the board of directors of Dwight Hall. Mangino is a former editor-in-chief of the Yale Daily News who is now working as deputy speechwriter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
Yale senior Jessica A. Moldovan, a history major who is a founder and an editor of the Yale Historical Review and co-director of Community Health Educators, will study at Trinity College Dublin as a Mitchell Scholar.
The Rhodes, Marshall and Mitchell scholarships are internationally recognized as among the most prestigious and competitive academic honors for graduate education. More news about the scholarship winners will appear next week in the Yale Daily Bulletin.
