Princeton senior Marie-Rose Sheinerman wins Rhodes Scholarship
Princeton University senior Marie-Rose Sheinerman has been awarded a Rhodes Scholarship for graduate study at the University of Oxford.
Sheinerman is among 32 American recipients of the prestigious fellowships, which fund two to three years of graduate study at Oxford. In a statement, Elliot Gerson, American Secretary of the Rhodes Trust, said of this year’s Rhodes Scholars representing the United States, “They inspire us already with their accomplishments, but even more by their values-based leadership and selfless ambitions to improve their communities and the world.”
Sheinerman will join an international group of Rhodes Scholars chosen from more than 60 countries. Individual countries announce their recipients on different schedules.
She will begin her studies at Oxford in October.
Sheinerman, of New York City, is concentrating in history and is also pursuing a certificate in Russian, East European and Eurasian studies. At Oxford, she will pursue an MPhil in history.
