Rhodes List Adds Two

Zimbabwe winners boost Harvard’s 2013 scholars total to nine.

Two Rhodes Scholarships are available in Zimbabwe annually, and this year’s winners are both Harvardians. Dalumuzi Mhlanga ’13, is a social-studies concentrator from Mather House and Bulawayo; he was just named one of the College’s "Fifteen Most Interesting Seniors" by the Harvard Crimson. Naseemah Mohamed ’12, a former Eliot House resident who also comes from Bulawayo, concentrated in social studies and African and African American studies; she is spending the year in India learning Indian classical dance on a Michael C. Rockefeller Memorial Fellowship. Her sister, astrophysicist Shazrene Mohamed ’04, won a Rhodes of her own in 2004, making the Mohameds the first pair of sisters to win scholarships in Rhodes history.

Harvard boasts one other international scholar in the Rhodes class of 2013: Madeleine E. Ballard of Canada, whose award was announced earlier. In addition, six members of the College class of 2013 have been named American Rhodes Scholars.
