The other Cambridge, that is. Thanks to the Lionel de Jersey Harvard Scholarship and the Lt. Charles Henry Fiske III Scholarship, both established soon after World War I, two Harvard (and, more recently, Radcliffe) College graduates annually have been able to study at Emmanuel College and Trinity College, Cambridge, respectively. Two years ago, the Harvard-Cambridge Scholarships Committee, the alumni group that administers funds for and selects recipients of the scholarships, created the John Eliot Scholarship to send one graduate yearly to Jesus College. "Due to the involvement of past winners, our program has been one of the few to expand in recent years," notes committee member Robert Shapiro '72, J.D. '78, a former Fiske Scholar.
Now American Friends of Cambridge University, a national organization composed mainly of Americans who have studied at Cambridge, has been so impressed by the Harvard committee's work that it has funded a scholarship to sponsor an additional Harvard or Radcliffe student for a year in Cambridge. The newly established Harvard-American Friends of Cambridge Scholarship will support a student for one year at Pembroke College.
This year's winners are Julissa Reynoso of New York City and Adams House (Harvard Scholar); Ying Qian of Shanghai and Cabot House (Fiske Scholar); Christopher F. Terrio of New York City and Adams House (Eliot Scholar); and Ethan Tucker of White Plains, New York, and Eliot House (Harvard-American Friends of Cambridge Scholar).
