Four Seniors Win Marshall Scholarships

The program affords students two years of graduate study at a U.K. university of their choosing.

Four members of the class of 2009 have been awarded Marshall Scholarships.

According to the University Gazette, the winners include Kyle Mahowald, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Winthrop House, an English concentrator who hopes to study the history and structure of English at Oxford; Emma Wu, of Camarillo, California, and Mather House, who wants to study cognitive neuropsychology and psychological research methods at either University College London or the University of Edinburgh; Andrew Miller, of Chicago and Mather House, a social-studies concentrator who aims to develop his senior-thesis research, on Chinese press coverage of North Korea, more fully at Oxford and the London School of Economics; and John Sheffield, of Fayetteville, North Carolina, and Pforzheimer House, a social-studies concentrator who told the Crimson he wants to study applied statistics in the scholarship's first year and political science in its second.

The Boston Globe has a round-up of all winners with New England ties.

The program, which is sponsored by the British government, funds two years of graduate study at any university in the United Kingdom.

The Crimson reports that the University fared particularly well in this year's competition: this is the first time in at least the last five years that more than two Harvard students have won the honor.
