The Chronicle of Higher Education - 11/22/2015
The Rhodes Trust has announced the names of the 32 men and women chosen as Rhodes Scholars from the United States for 2016. The scholarships cover all expenses for two or three years of study at the University of Oxford, in England.
The American winners were chosen from 16 districts across the United States and represent 22 colleges and universities. American citizens may apply for the scholarships through either the state where they legally reside or the state where they have attended college for at least two years.
In most years, the trust elects a winner from a college that has never before had a Rhodes Scholar, Elliot F. Gerson, the trust’s American secretary, said in a news release. This year, winners were chosen from two such institutions: Northeastern University, in Boston, and Youngstown State University, in Ohio.
